AS the world comes to terms with Britain’s decision to leave the European Union, reaction to the shock result has been dramatic.

But one Leave campaigner has put the ominous predictions of doom and despair into context with a Facebook post that has been lauded by Brexiters.

As the pound tanked, David Cameron quit and there were warnings of a “Black Friday”, press, politicians and supports of the Remain campaign spoke of a looming apocalypse brought by the Leave victory.

But Suzanne Evans, UKIP’s former spokeswoman, wrote on her Facebook page: “A Prime Minister resigned. The £ plummeted. The FTSE 100 lost significant ground.

“But then the £ rallied past February levels, and the FTSE closed on a weekly high: 2:4% up on last Friday, it’s best performance in 4 months.”

“President Obama decided we wouldn’t be at the back of the queue” after all and that our special relationship was still strong. The French President confirmed the Le Touquet agreement would stay in place.

“The President of the European Commission stated Brexit negations would be “orderly” and stressed the UK would continue to be a close partner of the EU.

“A big bank denied reports it would shift staff overseas. The CBI, vehemently anti-Brexit during the referendum campaign, stated British business was resilient and would adapt.

“Several countries outside the EU stated they wished to begin bilateral talks with the UK immediately.

“If this was the predicted apocalypse, well, it was a very British one. It was all over by teatime. Not a bad first day of freedom.”
