Brexit, uh-oh
June 27, 2016 2:21 AM

So...Brexit happened and now the winners don't know what to do:

Having now ousted Prime Minister David Cameron, they face a political vacuum, with their base demanding that promises be kept. Mr. Johnson, the front-runner to replace Mr. Cameron, has not made any further pronouncements since a subdued statement on Friday that was restricted to generalities.

"In voting to leave the E.U., it is vital to stress that there is now no need for haste," Mr. Johnson told reporters. Standing alongside him, Mr. Gove promised, "We can have democratic consent for an immigration policy that is fairer and more humane." He did not explain how.

He can't explain how because they had no idea what would happen if they actually won!

What a colossal mistake.
