Some great writing from Marina again, expressing wonderfully something I was thinking about today:

Dominic Cummings said MPs (in particular on the Remain side) shouldn't be surprised people are angry with them and threaten them because they didn't deliver Brexit after promising that they would honour the result of the referendum. I think what he overlooks is that the Leave campaign also promised a bright and fantastic and beautiful future with no downsides, only upsides. Now let's assume Brexit happens, you deliver Brexit, but it doesn't turn out that great after all. None of the problems you promised it would solve are solved. In worst case there are lots of job losses, all kinds of shortages and possibly even people dying because of Brexit. That will all be on you. You didn't deliver what you promised. You didn't keep your promises. It will all be on you. People will be angry with you. Very angry. Especially if they see that you don't suffer or have even gained from Brexit while they suffer. Good luck with the angry mob that will be baying for you.

Looks like the Brexiteers are starting to tear themselves apart. Very good.

I expect Simon is probably going to be shown right. The remain voting areas will be mostly fine while the leave voting areas will be hit hardest. The divisions in the country will widen further, especially when austerity continues or gets even worse. Of course the Brexiteers (who will largely be fine as they are wealthy) will deny all responsibility and accountability, everything will be someone else's fault.
The City may thrive despite Brexit, but the rest of us won’t
