Putting The Twenty-First Century Back On Track

Boris Johnson Has ‘Got Brexit Done’. With A Deal That Will Please No One

Brexit was never fundamentally an economic project. It was always more about what it said on the ballot paper in 2016. Brexit was about ceasing to be a member of the European Union. Leavers understood that. Remainers, in contrast, still struggle with it.
