"The big danger now is a lurch to the populist right in politics all over Europe"
That is my main fear - and that's a much bigger issue than today's FTSE, cost of a European holiday, or how the UK is going to trade internationally. I've always been an optimist and been delighted to have grown up at a time when Europe was not rent apart by war. Now I'm worried. And when things go wrong the UK will discover it really isn't an island anymore.
Incidentally I think the widespread discontent in society is largely due to the disconnect between the established political parties (who I think do a reasonable job) and parts of the electorate. But I'm a technical bod, not a political/communications analyst.
