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

The biggest single problem with Brexit is the total lack of evaluation of all the diverse aspects that have to be addressed. If we had wanted out, say 35 years ago, it would have been relatively simple. Today it is anything but. The evaluation should have been done BEFORE the referendum; an over-simplistic referendum followed by triggering exit without even thinking about what the issues would be, what it would cost us, etc, etc, was about as incompetent as it could possibly get. Now we are resorting to blind faith and hubris, again without any evaluation of these allegedly wonderful opportunities, history will undoubtedly repeat itself.

I think the upshot will be that we leave without any sort of deal. And I have to say, for the first time in my life, I fear the future.
