Thank goodness Britain is a nation of geniuses (or should that be genii?). Not even six months after the U.K. got to grips with the minutiae of European Union rule-making and its enormous, surreptitious dastardly implications for our country, we have all suddenly become experts in British Constitutional Law.
We have had a lot of help of course from the tabloids who have helped us navigate through the parts of Parliamentary Acts, conventions and court rulings that we were a bit rusty on but the long and the short of it is that most of us are now clear that High Court judges are "enemies of democracy," just like the EU, in fact just like anyone who has the temerity to question the will of the 17.4 million who voted out.
Equity markets have applied the same cold hard logic in evaluating Brexit. After the initial wobble on the Friday and Monday after the vote in late June, they have decided - with a little bit of help from a tumbling pound - that all is well and the FTSE 100 is over a 1,000 points up from our late June lows. All that scaremongering beforehand has so far proved to be just that and the economy in moving ahead at a glacial pace despite the fact that we still have no idea over when the Rubicon will be crossed, whether Article 50 will be enacted and what on earth our relationship with Europe will be like.
