When Brexit Wrecks it, we needn't worry.

Our Leaders have re-assured us:

"We have a world-leading reputation for doing things better."
"We will remain a world-leader."
"We shall lead the world in free trade."
"At times of crisis, the world looks to Britain - not just for our support but for our leadership."
"We can again become the envy of the world."
"Countries will look to us to provide the moral leadership and global leadership."

And for each of us individually:
"When we take the big calls, we'll think not of the powerful, but you.
  When we pass new laws, we'll listen not to the mighty, but to you.
  When it comes to taxes, we;ll prioritise not the wealthy, but you.
  When it comes to opportunity, we won't entrench the advantages of the fortunate few."

- quoted from The Right Honourable Theresa May, Prime Minister.
  She also said in 2016:

"Britain's prosperity will be more secure if we're in the EU."
