    he common perception of Brexit as a failed project might change over time, implying that its domino effect could still rear its ugly head. The British vote to leave the European Union on 23 June 2016 sent a shockwave through the other member states. At the time, the Leave campaign’s success triggered fears of a domino effect that would unravel the EU project. But against all expectations, Brexit has neither fuelled anti-EU sentiments among Europeans nor emboldened political leaders to demand their own country’s exit. On the contrary, the divisive nature of the British debate and the reality of Brexit has had a deterrent effect. Nevertheless, the Brexit domino effect could still return if Boris Johnson continues to escape any accountability and retells the Brexit story uncontested.
