However you greeted the news that broke in the early hours of Friday 24 June, whether it sent you off to work with a song of freedom in your heart, or made you feel like diving dismally back under the duvet for a decade or two, the fact is that Brexit is now clearly a thing. And a pretty big thing, at that. The people have spoken - or should that be howled - and we are all going to have to get used to it.
It's a seismic shift that has taken not only Britain but much of the world by surprise, as the mayhem that wiped $3tn off global markets in the first three post-Brexit trading days goes to show. Still, we are where we are and it is what it is, as the sage once said.
So in the glass half-full spirit of MT we have compiled a seven-point guide to making the most of Brexit. Its aim is twofold - to help you survive the initial shockwave, and having done so to offer a few pointers as to how we might all go about forging a thriving new future as a prosperous and settled European, rather than EU, nation. (With or without the Scots.)
