I'm beginning to think you're right.
However, if we don't leave due to irresponsible politicians and other remoaners, I'm afraid that the consequences are dire.
For one thing, 17.4 people who have been not only ignored but slapped in the face will not forgive them. It wouldn't surprise me if there are many complaints if not actual riots. In addition, the Conservatives can say goodbye to government for at least one term if not many more.
The other likely outcome is that the EU will collapse sooner or later anyway, as I have heard that there is still very much of a distaste amongst some member countries about what they have suffered since the organisation morphed from a free-trade union to a political dictatorship.
Of course, in the long term, our remaining in the EU will mean that when things do go tits-up, we shall partially carry the can.
I have decided as there is nothing I can do about it, I shall just have to accept what our rulers decide to do. To be honest, again due to poor government, the country is going to the dogs anyway: inadequate transport infrastructure, ineffective policing and judiciary, the imminent collapse of the NHS, and continued out-of-control immigration.
I'm just grateful that Marge and I are knocking on a bit now and that we have no children.
