I think it is too early to say nothing will happen because of brexit,Nobody was saying that.
EU would probably be having a very expensive debate in Brussels at this point on how to appease Putin.They didn't. They sent support.
If a government was prepared to invest, tax and legislate, brexit opens up numerous possibilities.Those possibilities were open, but the government didn't do them anyway.
Imports of foodstuffs produced in a cruel, explotitative or environmentally unfriendly way should be banned.In reality, Brexit means we will probably end up eating American stuff that doesn't meet our (or EU) standards of quality, safety or animal welfare.
Products produced from polluting sources (coal fired electricity, chemical discharge etc) should be legislated against.Not really because that would stop other people trading with us.
I doubt we will see any government have the bravery to do anything meaningful,They "bravely" made themselves an their friends much richer.
You could argue that illegally proroguing parliament was brave.
