The Brexit vote is this Thursday, so nothing else matters until then. And polls, just to make it even more stressful, have it neck and neck. See Brexit poll tracker back to even at 44-44.

No one has the slightest idea how such a divorce would go and if its immediate impact would be positive or negative.
