The last laugh could be on the very people on the right who are gloating.

For millions of people who streamed out to vote Leave from poverty stricken estates and in devastated towns this was seen as their chance to kick the government they loathed, and which most people loathe. ( elected by one in four of tye electorate, and acting like it had some massive vote of confidence behind it).

These were peole who had given up on voting years ago, or never voted in their lives. The structure of the referendum they knew that their vote counted for once.

Those on the left who voted In were collateral damage, as was tge economy.

But now the distraction of immigration controls is no more. This is the chance for a populist movement of the repressed and exploited analogous to Podemos in Spain. The old rule book is torn up.
