Many arguments for leaving the EU sat closer to nationalist rhetoric, borderline warmongering and was evident throughout the 2017 general election. Screams of will you “push the button?” JUST “PUSH THE BUTTON!” by question time audience members during the campaign trail were inexplicable and scary.
Following the referendum to leave the EU, the British pound plummeted and continues to be eaten up by the dollar.

EU membership or not.
