Chris Grey as usual says it best:
Brexit has created a deeply divided country

Never before has a modern democratic country deliberately embarked on such a major change of direction whilst so internally divided about its wisdom, and one so widely seen by observers across the world as seriously damaging ...

... even as it is forced on the country, they remain unsatisfied and remain in that comfort zone of complaint and victimhood. ...

There may be worse days to come

At best, depending on what happens now, the effects may continue to be a gradual, slow-burn process of damage and decline with no great drama, and the full effects emerging over so many years that their cause will be easily denied.
