"The truth is that the referendum was reduced to such a crude choice that no one knows exactly what the majority voted for. Rather than encouraging an informed politics, it has made our system even more reductive.Whatever happens now, it will be messy - a referendum can’t resolve the deep national rift, but it can clear the pungent smell that has tainted the political air."

The country is a shambles, and may never recover its dignity on the world stage - what a cataclysmic mess. Rest in peace Britannia, killed by lies, false promises, empirical style propaganda, vested interests, and gross ineptitude.
