Project Fear is right: we should be afraid

Full marks to Irish taoiseach Leo Varadkar who said yesterday in response to the suggestion that he was simply promoting Project Fear about Brexit:

In terms of fear, I think we should be afraid of a no-deal Brexit … [it] would have very serious impacts on the economy, north and south, and on Britain. It could have security implications as well and it could have constitutional implications. It’s something that we have to prepare for nonetheless. It is something we should be afraid about.

Sometimes the glaringly obvious ahs to be said. And Project Fear has always, rightly, been about something that we should rightly be very afraid of.

One day a lot of people are going to realise how true that is.
