    Brexit Armageddon was a terrifying vision – but it simply hasn’t happened

    "Project Fear predicted economic meltdown if Britain voted leave, so where are the devastated high streets, job losses and crashing markets?

    Unemployment would rocket. Tumbleweed would billow through deserted high streets. Share prices would crash. The government would struggle to find buyers for UK bonds. Financial markets would be in meltdown. Britain would be plunged instantly into another deep recession.

    Remember all that?"


    But it is obvious that the sky has not fallen in as a result of the referendum, and those who said it would look a bit silly.

    Since nothing has been done to implement BREXIT saying that is has done no harm yet is a case of "duh" at best. They have not even started negotiations or formally told the EU they are leaving.

    When they separate or even take the first steps toseparate then we will see what happens

    Done no harm? I think it has done some good. The funds I bought into the day after the vote have profited very well ...

    This whole Brexit thing was funny to watch from over here. They stay voters lost their shit and had a meltdown and threw a temper tantrum even going so far as asking for a do over. On the other side, it came out that a lot of exit voters simply didn't know what they were voting for or the implications.

    The doom and gloom was certainly to be expected. Brexit may, however, just make English football great again.
