Brexit has dominated the world’s attention and street vocabulary. The British referendum on 23 June triggered a chain of events and reality that the “Stay” and “Leave” camps had not, and probably could not have, foreseen. Watching the turmoil that Brexit breathed into European and world events was like peeling a new layer daily to see what the British vote really meant.
