Britain is in danger of becoming the worldís largest church fete.

Although it's conclusions might be a bit too pessimistic, even for me, I think this brexit related New York Times article is worth flagging up. It points out quite correctly that the Brexiteer's plans for post-eu britain are based entirely on fantasy; a nostalgia for a global, imperial britain which is long dead. The outists keep telling us how we'll trade with the world, asif we were still somehow a superpower. The reality, of course, is far far different; the true prognosis far bleaker. The article forecasts we'll turn in on ourselves, cut off from the world, and become some sort of authoritarian state with an economy based on exporting jam, biscuits and cheese: ''Britain, it seems, is in danger of becoming the world's largest church fete.'' That might be pushing it a bit far, but it's certainly true that we'll soon be ruing the day when we chose to believe the outists' lies. Things might be okay for now, but that won't last. I only hope we see sense and turn back before it's too late.
