I read an interesting article on Bloomberg today suggesting that Brexit could be made to work if only the UK looked to Canada as an example.
And therein lies the paradox, because the Leave vote was thoroughly grounded in a rejection of liberal principles and global openness.
In other words Brexit can only be a success if left to the Remainers to sort out.
It's the same anywhere when you look at the surging global protest vote and then look at its leaders and the rhetoric they habitually deploy.
Just look at many of the the people who will be coming out to vote for Trump and then just look at Donald.
What sort of Messiah can he possibly be for the disempowered?
