The Times explores why at least one political leader thinks the United Kingdom is heading toward a decade of misery.

The first minister painted the dire scenario to MSPs yesterday. She said that, while the expected time for the UK to leave the EU after Article 50 had been triggered was two years, that did not cover the establishment of new working relationships between the former member state and the bloc, which would take far longer.

“I do think there is a real risk that the UK is facing right now a lost decade or more when the uncertainty and turmoil of Brexit and everything that comes after it . . . will dominate and the damage that will then do to our economy and other areas of our society will likely be deep and severe, and that is why I am so concerned about this,”
