The flag-waving, jingoistic tub-thumping pseudo-patriotic posturing of the Leave brigade has defeated common sense.
Gullible ill-informed and easily swayed the mass of the British public has voted us out of the EU.
What am I afraid of?
Perhaps my greatest fear is that this is the thin end of the wedge which will allow fascism (never very far below the surface) to begin its slow creep into the British psyche.
This after all is the way Nazi Germany began to gain its hold over the reasonable fair-minded part of the population.
All economic considerations aside, and there are many, the insidious racist verbal attacks on sections of our society which have been so evident during this campaign are just the tip of the ice-berg.
Where do we go from here?.
Who knows, but I am praying hard.
