Living as I do outside the UK, it's interesting to watch British (or at least English) exceptionalism in full flow. I don't just mean the hard Brexiteers who think that the UK will be able to ride out the storm and emerge into the land of unicorns, but remainers who genuinely seem to think that Britain leaving the EU is the worst act any country has committed, ever. In other words, if the UK isn't the best country in the world, then it must be the worst. The idea of just being happy with being a moderately prosperous and influential nation seems alien to them. You get the same kind of attitudes in the USA and, to a certain extent, Australia, but Brexit has taken the UK up to a whole new level. Regardless of the rights and wrongs of leaving the EU, we really, really need to get over that.
