Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I had a moment of clarity before all this happened.

What if we actually vote to leave? I mean, like would we really do that ... but anyway, Cameron will have to step down and there will have to be another election.

Who will win, who will be the PM. Could it possibly be Boris? Please, no. No country could be that stupid. And when we have left who will be our friend? America? Pah! They are not and never have been our friend. And what if (now I am hallucinating) Trump wins. No, that would never happen, no country would be that stupid either. But if all of this madness happened, that would be us - out of Europe, with Boris as PM and Trump as president.

At this point I woke up in a cold sweat and had to make my self a nice cup of tea and a slice of toast. I remember discussing this unlikely sequence of events with friends at the time.

What frightens me is that almost all of that has come true. Grrr.

PS, I voted remain - however you are right, why is it always our round?
Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
