Exactly a year ago “pessimists” were fretting over what they called an “expected hard landing” (whatever that is) in China, doubling it up with “deflation fears” in the West.

(One good thing about these folks though is that their elbows and rear ends are interchangeable).
After exhausting list of alleged impacts, Brexit now accused of interfering with Hadron Collider, accelerating apocalypse.
IndyRef2 was always the endgame here; a bizarre rope-a-dope strategy where the minority of the electorate would somehow absorb defeat, vent its collective frustrations and morph into a majority opinion. And then: Presto! The Brexit decision arrives as both a convenient and common enemy.
