Ethical political leadership is in short supply worldwide, from the United States to Turkey to the Philippines. But perhaps the most striking instance of dishonest leadership has been in the United Kingdom, where the Brexit referendum and its aftermath have caused more instability than Britain experiences in a typical decade.In just the first couple of weeks after the referendum, David Cameron, the prime minister who brought about the vote, resigned, and his Conservative successor, Theresa May, appointed a new Cabinet. Though some of the Brexiteers – most notably former London Mayor Boris Johnson – are now in the government, none of those who led the campaign to leave the European Union are ultimately responsible for carrying it out. In the past year, companies big and small in the U.K., elsewhere in the EU, and around the world have held countless meetings and high-level planning sessions to prepare for a Brexit vote.If a CEO can't command the respect of his leadership team, he can't lead the company to success, even if most of the employees think he's great. The same is true of political parties, though they often take longer to act, causing the enterprise – in this case, the U.K. – to flounder.With very few exceptions, the Brexit vote has brought out the worst in Britain's leaders.
