This is the Brexit Catch 22.

This was obvious to the experts but the experts were ignored by Brexit supporters listening to Farage, Johnson, Gove et al.

Investment will be frozen and jobs will go overseas. Families with big mortgages and credit card bills need to start doing some disaster planning.

What a mess! This was all because the populists listened to the Pied Piper. Read the NYT view on Johnson, the Pied Piper.

There seems to be something wrong with a society that rewards the likes of Boris Johnson with another opportunity to make mischief. He told some very big lies to the British people then he walks away scot-free. It’s just one more public school prank to the likes of Johnson.

It’s disgraceful.
