Brexit vote is about the supremacy of Parliament and nothing else: Why I am voting to leave the EU Ambrose Evans-Pritchard. This is a terrific essay, both in tone and in substance.

Brexit’s First 100 Days Promise Chaos, Fear, Damage Limitation Bloomberg. This is a very useful article, except it misses the point we raised yesterday, and UK readers underscored: a Leave vote does not necessarily imply a Brexit. The vote is advisory. Parliament must somehow confirm the vote, presumably with more detailed legislation (something we don’t see happening quickly if at all) and that event would seem to be the trigger for the events (save the market-freakout related ones) outlined here. We also raised the possibility that the EU would give the UK the bribes, um, waivers needed for the UK officialdom to persuade enough voters to change their minds on a second referendum, but a colleague of mine who reads the German press thinks there’s little political will on the Continent to do that. But a few days of bad market reactions could change that.

Presidential Election 2016: Key Indicators Gallup (martha r). On the one hand, Trump’s unfavorable ratings are up and his favorables are down from his peak.the change is only 3-4 points over a month. But Hillary’s unfavorables are down only 2 points from her peak, and her favorables up only two points. The reason this ought to worry Team Dem is this take place after the Mexican judge self-inflicted wound by Trump and after Clinton’s coronation by AP, her California win, and her self-coronation. She should have gotten a bigger bump than that. But Trump still has a markedly bigger net negative total than she does.
