Re: Growing Sense of bereavement..
"You could say exactly the same about the Remain campaign, where promises about more control and more independence were just so much hot air."
I don't recall the Remain camp making many promises of what would happen if we stayed in, tbh. I do remember them promising that if they lost, the pound would fall, unemployment would go up, there'd be a recession, we wouldn't be able to get access to the common market without following all the rules anyway, hell, even that the price of holidays would go up. Y'know, all the stuff that's actually happened over the last few days.
Just about the only thing that hasn't happened is Osborne's Brexit Budget (A.K.A the second-longest electorial suicide note in history), and that's only because he honestly still believes he has a chance at No. 10.
