It seems like Britain will have the EU's trading regulations but not its benefits. And that is the best possible outcome, sadly.

Totally agree IP: the problem we have to tackle is education, information and engagement, I think a more functional political establishment would inevitably follow, if only it could be done. 

If I may be so bold as to offer a solution to this problem  :D

Putin and Kim are cool.  The EU is a 'foe'.  Where's it all going to end?

Condolences to any thriller writers currently trying to pitch a series which ends with POTUS exposed as a puppet of an enemy nation and/or "the American people" rising up and demanding he be removed from office.

In UK news, Vote Leave broke the law and so it was an illegitimate result.
In completely unrelated news, the government have voted to go on holiday immediately, seeing as they have no other pressing matters to attend to in this Parliamentary session.

I doubt it. The most powerful man in the world loves despotic dictators and hates liberal democracies.

He's only powerful because ordinary people believe him to be powerful. Erode that belief, erode the power.
