It does seem that no one in England were ready for Brexit even though they voted for it.
Parliament cannot agree on their own Brexit demands, nor did anyone think through all the trade and economic factors involved.


Seems parts of the UK just assumed trade deals and travel would continue the same way, too much short sighted thinking.

They seem to blame Russians for spreading misinformation on the internet and social media pushing for Brexit. But they fail to realize a lot of voters that were much older are in favor of Brexit and they don't use the internet and social media as their main source of news and info.

Mark Zuckerberg started this crap, he should be sitting in a jail cell. He basically hacked the human race to make himself rich. Social media is the enemy.

No, they just knew that continuing in the so-called "European Union" was even worse than losing various trade deals and ease of travel. The vote made sense and would be ultimately good for England, despite the growing pains that would inevitably come. Now they're going through those pains.

Hang in there, UK. You had it right the first time.
