Don't underestimate angry American voters. Many angry British voters who voted Brexit now regret their what they did...

To explain facts in ways that could be dismissed as scare tactics did not work for the Bremain side. Nevertheless the facts explained have now started to happen. Billions of pounds have for instance been viped off the savings acconts of the British people.
British politics is starting to resemble a bowling alley. One after another, political figures are tumbling–including the leading lights of the Brexit campaign. They sowed the wind and now are reaping the whirlwind.
