Full marks to the House of Lords for sounding the alarm bells over Brexit. The government's defeat in the upper house rather ruined the party for Theresa May. The vote in the Lords came just a few days after warnings on Brexit from former prime ministers John Major and Tony Blair. My two biggest worries on Brexit are the impact on the British economy and the fate of European Union workers in Britain and British citizens living in Europe. Both Blair and Major have indicated that while the British public voted to leave the European Union they were not really aware of all the pitfalls. And there are plenty. Perhaps the British government should use the defeat in the Lords to have a "cooling-off" period in which all the latest developments regarding Brexit can be properly digested by the British public.
