Who will answer when a nation calls for greatness

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Britons were told that unemployment would scourge the land, the economy would collapse, there would be no medicine to assuage the pain of disease, fresh food would disappear from grocery shelves, and neither fish nor chips would survive a vote to leave Europe. In the event, Britain soon enjoyed the highest employment in nearly 50 years, the economy grew even faster than in Germany, the strongest economy on the planet. All against the scorn of the little men in Brussels. Now Britain is looking for new leadership, for optimists, not pessimists. Perhaps someone in a new generation will be raised to greatness. It may seem unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
