brexit was the result of a demorcaric consessus by the masses, of which a majority decision voted to leave. As for the political mess that happened after that decision. well that is down to political philandering, swerves, financial regulation negotiations, incompetence, a highly divise political system and party centerism and the overall feeling of a government that essentially rejects the central notion of a sovereign nation and a semi imposed referendum mandate. Does that answer your question Curryman????
