"You mean those everyday Brits that voted for Brexit? Those everyday Brits?

This is one of those simplistic statements that is worth a second glance.
Just over 25% of the UK population voted for Brexit; the majority ( 74%) either voted against ( just under 25% of the UK population), did not vote ( shame on them ) or were not able to vote ( for example some 1.6m UK citizens living abroad could not vote, even though they will lose their EU passport - enough to have swung the decision remain's way).
More importantly, although leaving was a straight in or out vote, every leave campaigner, from Johnson to Farage, emphasized that the UK would get the best deal ever ( shades of Trump) and that leaving without a deal was not an option. So voting leave was not a vote for a no deal, potentially catastrophic exit, the option Johnson has championed.
Johnson was also not elected by everyday Brits. He was elected by just over 92,000 Conservative party members, almost to a man/woman middle class, relatively wealthy and older individuals, least impacted by Brexit and most motivated by dreams of lost empire.
It is clear now that Leave got the most votes in the way that a suicide victim gets the final say - definitive but very wrong.
