    That weasel phrase "difficult to quantify" sounds like simply a fancy way of saying "not in evidence".

    indeed everything will be fine

    Ignore the doom sayers

    Don't invest in post-Brexit Britain, warns Europe’s largest management consultancy | The Independent

    after all I very much suspect a U-Turn is on its way.

    hmm another interesting poll

    Brexit: If EU referendum were held again Remain would win, poll shows | The Independent

    Sure hasn't changed much since the referendum, but I'm not seeing everyone get behind the Brexit bandwagon, and the economic figures are "good".

    It will be interesting to see what may happen if Brexit does end up in a mess.

    Anyone.

    As long as they are a demographic who is known to vote then politicians will make policies for them.

    Of course not, too many of them simply expect it all to be "fixed" for them in order that they can seamlessly continue tweeting, Instagramming, and photographing their lunch.
