Well, he resigned as chancellor shortly after the Brexit vote! I'm not sure where you are getting the "fact" that the economy was set to collapse immediately after the vote though, this seems like a conveneint sop to base false premises on.

Most rational people assumed the economy would take a short, sharp hit on the announcement of a "leave" vote, followed by an unremitting disaster of a decade or more once it was actually executed.
He warned people before the vote, it is FACT, he also promised lower house prices which is just filtering through, 15% off in London prices according to the Grauniad today. High-End property has fallen off a cliff due to stamp duty, 30-40% reductions & still no sales. Not a single penthouse ever sold at the SHARD
