Just you wait until Brexit has actually happened, we're only in the transition phase now. Just you wait until you have to make sure your (blue) passport is valid for at least six months. Just you wait until you need an international driving license just to drive a car in some EU countries. Just you wait until your travel insurance skyrockets because the EHIC won't be valid any more. Just you wait until you need to apply for a visa waiver before even traveling to the EU, like you already have to do before traveling to the US.

And yes, that's exactly what you voted for. Sovereignty goes both ways. If the UK "takes back control of its borders", so does the EU.

Didn't they promise that once we had left the EU there would be £350M/week for the NHS? Didn't they promise there would be dozens of amazing trade deals signed the minute after Brexit happened? Didn't they promise the UK wouldn't have to pay a single penny of the "divorce bill"? I guess a lot of Brexiteers must be feeling rather sheepish now.....

An important point, which could still lead to enormous pressure on the government once Brexit all goes wrong and the promised sunlit uplands don't appear but jobs disappear as production is shifted from the UK to the continent (with the increased bureaucracy JIT etc simply won't be feasible any longer):
Despite the Conservatives' election success, polls conducted during the campaign suggested - as they had done for the last two years - that there was a small but consistent majority in favour of remaining in the EU.
Brexit: Do Britons now agree about leaving the EU?

Now that the UK has left the EU the Brexiteers referendum mandate to take the UK out of the EU is gone, their strongest argument is gone. Now they need to show they can fulfil their promises of a better future. Meaning they're on the defence. They won it, they own it. They need to deliver. It's their fault if it goes wrong. And it's up to the Rejoiners to make the positive case to (re-)join the EU, the advantages it will bring when Brexit doesn't deliver what it was promised to deliver.

The end of the dream. The start of the resistance.

Quite frankly, I don't really care. I'm just going to ignore their gloating. And then pay it back once it all goes wrong. "You won, you own it!", "You won, get over it!" I know we should be better than them, but quite frankly, I don't care any more. I'll let them gloat for now. Should they be right after all (which I'm pretty sure they won't be) then I'll be happy for them as it will also benefit me. But if they're not (which I firmly believe) then I feel I've earned the right to gloat and to blame. Then I feel I've earned the right to hold them accountable for the misery they have brought on to the country. Then I feel I've earned the right to rub their noses in it.

Brexit celebrations ‘rub our noses in it’, says Heseltine

Well, it's hard to show solidarity with people who didn't want to listen, who gloated, who insulted you and called you names. It's hard not to say, "you won, get over it". It's hard not so say, "you won, you own it". Especially because when it all goes pear shaped there will be no apology forthcoming, only blame. Blame for those who warned, blame for those who tried to stop or at least soften the disaster they could see coming.

With Boris Johnson in control, the danger is that liberals will give up the fight
