Letter of the week on Brexit

Lionel Barber on Twitter. “Letter of the week on Brexit: a City’s veteran’s explosive verdict. Worth reading every word.”


Hard core Brexiteers are like addicts hooked on a “narrow shortsighted nationalism” who would have this country “return to an Edwardian age”.

They’re like Robert Downey Jr. in 1999 talking about his addiction. “It’s like I have a loaded gun in my mouth and my finger’s on the trigger and I like the taste of the gunmetal.”

Only the gun isn’t in their mouth it’s in ours.
