Maybe I've heard Cameron uttering weasel words to often. My, there have been more than enough over the years of his "leadership". (I use " " there as he's demonstrated leadership by focus group.)

I wouldn't start looking too soon. I doubt anyone thinks there's a magic wand solution. It won't be easy and the only forecast I'm prepared to make is that there will be stumbles along the way.
The other thing, of course, is that for many people it's not just, or even, about money. Certainly the economy is important but there are some things that The UK has 650 MPs, each accountable to their constituents who, if they feel their MP is not properly representing a majority of them, can dispense with his services. (And, yes, I appreciate that MPs have other considerations like doing what they believe is right for the nation as a whole, amongst others). I also realise that, in theory at least, the same can be said of MEPs but they are much more remote, are voting with or against other national interests on matters that are generally proposed by representatives of 27 other countries with their own national interests at heart. Proposals are then prepared by Europe's civil servants, put forward as Directives and "gold plated" by their counterparts in the UK.
Those people are all relatively remote from UK voters and pretty much inaccessible. I'd rather have decisions made or at least influenced by an MP in a British parliament: one that I can actually get to meet to express my opinion or give them the opportunity to convince me that what they're proposing or supporting is the right course of action.
Expecting a "Remain" win, on hearing the result, my first feeling was of surprise, closely followed by huge relief.
I'm suffering severe 'Brexit Yap' fatigue so won't be making any further comment unless, of course, the weasel politicians try to undermine the exit process.
