    Since they voted for Brexit, it will be a good lesson for them.
    The younger, well educated, with rigorous degrees will take their pick of jobs here or abroad.
    Another unicorn moment. They're feckin swarming today.

    In all these months since the referendum, I've yet to find a Brexiter who can explain how they expect Britian to thrive in the world following a likely big hit in (mainly services) trade with her biggest trading partner (trade worth 600 billion) given low productivity, poor educational skills for all but the top 10%, large twin deficits, large debt to GDP ratio (91% and rising), too-small manufacturing sector (not a single volume British consumer goods manufacturer).

    I'm willing to change my mind, if someone argues for a plausible model.
    Otherwise I assume it's all la-la land.

    By avoiding the "likely big hit" when negotiating. A "likely big hit" which would be bad news for both parties.

    That's your last hope?
    Given the shower of tulipe we have leading us, I'm betting on the worst outcome.
