Crash-out. Or D-Day - Disaster Day - minus 7

And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

I didn't know, but this is where the Four Horsemen come from. And it is the apocalypse.
Right following the Brexit vote in 2016, I thought Britain had voted itself out of being a major world economy. Now it appears we will see if that was right. China, of course, will be sympathetic to a now developing country that needs assistance.
