What can you say about the Trump v Clinton contest that hasn't already been said? Not much. The world just sits and waits for the outcome now, and whichever way it goes, it is going to be bad. There is an international climate of dread.
Here we have Farage having dark and public premonitions of civil unrest should the Brexit button not be pressed before parliament has had a chance to discuss the ramifications, and the U.S. also have shadowy figures predicting a country already split down the middle, moving toward a Civil War re-enactment, but with modern weapons.
It is the age-old Roman technique of 'divide and rule' to gain power. Both sides shout, "Unite!" at a confused and ignorant electorate, thereby avoiding being accused of trying to split the country.

The 'common enemy' was each other.
