David Cameron overheard saying what he really thinks about Brexit

The former PM made comments that J.K. Galbraith would approve of. Probably.

The Canadian-American economist and author J.K Galbraith once famously stated that politics is not the art of the possible. Rather it is about “choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable”.

Now David Cameron has been overheard saying what he really thinks about Brexit - in terms that Galbraith would surely approve of.

Asked about Brexit by Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, the former prime minister suggested that it was turning out to be unpalatable, but not disastrous. Yet.

“It’s frustrating. As I keep saying, it’s a mistake not a disaster."

In footage captured by 5 News, Cameron added somewhat sheepishly about the biggest catastrophe of his career:

“It’s turned out less badly than we first though, but it’s still going to be difficult.”
