It might look like a satirical headline but the director of the official campaign to leave the EU during last year’s referendum really has admitted Brexit might turn out to be a terrible mistake.
Dominic Cummings – the man responsible for the lie on a bus – has branded the decision to call the referendum “dumb” and said the voters may have made an “error” by believing his spin.
The former special advisor to Michael Gove casually admitted he may have helped lead Britain into the abyss in a late night Twitter exchange.
Responding to a blog post by Cummings about Brexit, Financial Times journalist David Allan Green asked:
Is there anything which could now happen (or not happen) which would make you now wish Leave had not won the referendum result?

To which Cummings replied:
Lots! I said before REF was dumb idea, other things shdve been tried 1st. In some possible branches of the future leaving will be an error
