One version, arguably the dominant version, would point to the airwaves, Newsnicht and First Minister's Questions, interviewing politicians and canvassing a recurring band of greying (or long-grey) pundits, whose opinions we're all already perfectly familiar with.

The social life of the referendum, if you like.
