I see no way to avoid violence at this stage. The idea that appeasing xenophobes will satisfy them is immensely stupid. The choice is whether to wreck the place and break some heads a little later or not wreck the place and have to break some heads a bit earlier.

Personally I think most Brexiteers are paper tigers huffing in their dotage. Pathetic armchair generals yearning for empire for the most part with no relevance to a modern economy...  Sure there will be a hooligan element who take advantage of any conflict to have a riot, but UK securocrats are past master at turning political protest into criminal activity so as to deal with it more easily.

The problem is more immediately political.  The Conservative Party might well implode, and at the moment Conservative Party interests trump all others.
