I refer of course to "Brexit".  Just came across a reference to the
> Brexiteers and I'm sure other spinoffs abound.

Back in February for my WSJ column I wrote about "Brexit," "Brexiter,"
"Brexiteer," "Bremain," "Bremainer," "Brexpert," etc.


In recent days many more spinoffs have been added, including "Regrexit,"
"Bregret," "Bremorse," etc. Probably worth its own special category in the
WOTY voting.
