In time to come people will look back on this disaster and remember who opposed Brexit and who didn’t
Commentary on UK and US politics. I.T. Consultant, northerner eternally grumpy about the damage done to our country by successive governments. More recently, retweeted by Donald Trump when I called him a Fascist, which is the best endorsement I'm ever likely to get.
