This is an outstanding must-read article by Martin Wolf at the FT. He questions ‘how might future historians judge a British decision to leave the EU in the referendum on June 23?’ He argues that it might well be seen as the moment when the west started to unravel. That is why Barack Obama, US president, is not merely entitled to present his views but should try to influence matters using his full power.
I totally agree that the Brexit will be like a starting pistol for cranks around the world. It will be a rewind of pre-WWI.
