Stephen KangalWith the resignations of the British Brexit and Foreign Secretaries, Messrs Davis and Johnson, the Brexit seismology has assumed the dimensions, challenges and divisiveness of the metaphorical Pandora’s Box prematurely opened up by a discarded former PM David Cameron who was its first Prime Ministerial victim.
