Err, still there and happily continuing "business as usual".
Erm, not really. 'Business as usual' was milking the European system, free trade and most importantly of all (30% of our current GDP revenues) free financial passsporting for the banking industry, which is just about to go pop. 18% real value drop in the pound, exports floundering, national debt static, business confidence doubtful, foreign investors moving their cash/property elsewhere..
Which means the establishment is scuppered, banking is scuppered, and the British economy with it.
Which part of business as usual were you talking about?
Free Trade - still in place as we speak.
financial Passporting - still in place
18% drop in value of £ - you think that is something we should be please about (given the inflation it causes and that it impacts those who can least afford it).
National Debt - has Farange overthrown that 'cos I thought it was still getting worse just as before.
Business confidence/foreign investors - you think destroying confidence and loss of foreogn investors something we should admire Franage for causing ?
Yet still we have an appointed leader doing what she wants, not listening to anybody, just as we had before and before, etc. We have a predominantly white millionaire male government dominated by public school attendees, etc.
Yet as we speak now I can see little different. As of now the Banking/financial crisis was far more significant so you be better saying that they overthrew the establishment (except they didn't).
Maybe you are confusing what might happen in the future with what has happened. But even leaving the EU is hardly going to "overthrow the establishment". It will probably have horrendous effects on the economy, those in society who are in need, on unemployment, on the UK debt but I suspect the one thing that will survive unaffected will be "the Establishment".
