I do not believe that Brexit will happen–FT


The elites are going to tighten the noose. Nothing can be taken off the table, nothing. There is far too much corruption to allow the revolutionaries, very likely to be more honest and transparent than the technocratic pigs that have been feeding at the EU slop troughs for so many years, to return control over the State back to the people that have ignorantly succumbed to an undemocratic slavery.

It is entirely possible that the UK government may find a way to disregard the referendum and risk a parliamentary election, which they will make sure that they win. Someone could make billions going long right now and betting that Brexit gets shelved, no matter how dishonestly. But, then again the entire financial and economic system has just been waiting for that one pinprick to deflate the biggest con game in the history of humanity. 

There will be howls of rage, but why should extremists on both sides dictate how the story ends?

All good dramas involve the suspension of disbelief. So it was with Brexit. I went to bed at 4am on Friday depressed that Britain had voted to leave the EU. The following day my gloom only deepened. But then, belatedly, I realised that I have seen this film before. I know how it ends. And it does not end with the UK leaving Europe.Any long-term observer of the EU should be familiar with the shock referendum result. In 1992 the Danes voted to reject the Maastricht treaty. The Irish voted to reject both the Nice treaty in 2001 and the Lisbon treaty in 2008.
