City of London desperately wanted to Remain. It was the blue-collar, working class English and Welsh that voted to leave.

Not sure that I would go that far, but Putin is refreshing to watch. He is what a leader should be - a ruthless advocate for his country's own interests.

China is the big winners. Japan and South Korea are next.

The Brexit has caused a massive shift of capital from Britain to the United States, driving up the value of the dollar.

China wants nothing more than a strong dollar, so Americans can buy more of their stuff.

Russia is an afterthought, relevant only to preppers and other weirdos.
