The US voted for Trump and got 4 years of madness the UK voted for Brexit and could end up living through a generation of madness. So we now have it from the horses mouth - Dominic Cummings the man that sold Brexit to the UK public (on the back of years wealth sponsored media propaganda) has made it clear it was a complete con. All the supposed benefits were a con, it was just a means to an end – which seems to be about replacing democracy in the UK with some type of technocratic junta – he and those like him knowing that been in the EU would make that difficult wanted to get out so he would have free rein to trash the present UK system of government (and while the UK system of government is getting trashed it is not in the way he hoped) Dom had his techno dream (his personal unicorn) and he didn’t care what he did to get it, he didn’t care if what he sold the leavers was deceitful, lies or a crock of shit, it didn’t matter to him, he had no loyalty to truthfulness or even to democracy, he seems to have chosen the Tory party to manipulate because they were open to it and they were his best road to power and he chose Johnson to prime minister because he was a willing fool and once he’d got him in power he was choosing a successor. Brexit was a con, that some willingly entered into and others joined because they hadn’t the capacity to see beyond the dogma and lies. I like many have "Compassion for the conned, contempt for the conmen." But the conned really need to open their eyes and see what the contemptable did to them.
