You can make quite similar arguments for not only much of Europe but for much of the Western world so the UK is no more punching above it's weight than all the rest.

But that is an argument better-suited to a devoted thread.
We're already seeing a new industrial revolution and I suspect that post-covid we will see changes gather pace.
We are fortunate in the UK in that we are a hugely inventive and creative nation.
If we're able to grasp the opportunities proffered as a result of Brext too we could - COULD - see the UK enter a new era of prosperity.
