    Please note this post is just about poking a bit of fun at 3D pie charts. Please do not post comments which express political views since I will delete them.

    In the same vein as the BBC’s obligation to offer balanced coverage of both sides to a debtae, would you please include a 2nd version of the 3D pie chart, but rotated 180 degress, such that the relative positions of the Remain and Leave slices reversed.
