This is what happens...

...after several years of austerity: people get frustrated and lash out. (And do stupid things.)

In America it means millions of voters cast their ballots for either a "populist/nationalist" (I still think that sounds like "national socialist") like Donald Trump or a socialist like Bernie Sanders.

In Britain they voted yesterday to leave the EU. We'll see what that decision holds for the UK in the short- and long-term, but in the meantime it sure looks to me like they cut off their nose to spite their face.
