“How foul this referendum is. The most depressing, divisive, duplicitous political event of my lifetime. May there never be another” – Tweet from the novelist Robert Harris.
“Free at last, Free at last, Thank God almighty we are free at last.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
…Free of further campaigning, for the time being, if nothing else. By the end of this week, the entire British nation will enjoy a collective sigh of relief.

For politicians, economists, political hucksters and the various news media, this was not their finest hour.
