Will Brexiteers apologise if Brexit does damage to our nation?

Image may contain: one or more people and beard
As a Remoaner, I predict that Brexit will do Britain great economic, social and ecological harm.
As a human, I could be wrong.
So. If, as a result of Brexit, say over the next 10 years, Britain does OK economically; 
if our exports go up, if we develop full employment in a green, sustainable economy, if crops and fruit get picked, if our nurse and doctor numbers hold up, if our scientists stay here and flourish, if no major damage is done elsewhere to the fabric of our society, if Britain becomes a happier, more equal nation, showing a generous and peaceable spirit,

then yes, I will gladly apologise to every Brexiteer.
And I will continue to work for a happier Britain in a happier world, whatever happens.
Now, will you Brexiteers be prepared to stand up and make a public apology if Brexit turns into a Dog's Brexit, an economic, social and ecological mess? 

Will you?

Dear England, land of 'sorry' and 'please do' and 'hello love! How are you?', land of soft spoken apologies your traditional politeness seems to be ebbing... So much so that I find an Englishman lamenting its fragility, doubting its survival...

I too have noticed how much harder it has become for most politicians and more generally powerful professionals and buisnesmen to apologise. Maybe they sense that if they do, they will loose face and be in the dock for a long time...
