UK is in a seriously dire position. It's an existential crisis for the UK, and for 'Great Britain' as political entities. The future is really in the balance with 'Mad Max Wasteland' a real possibility.
One of the UK's many problems is a dearth of leadership. There are a heap of snakes, charlatans and incompetents in the UK cabinet. And when I say UK cabinet I mean those remaining unworthy that haven't already resigned or been stood down. As Brexit Minister, a succession of clownish fantasist idiots leading and then fighting May's Red Line disaster: Davis, Johnson, Raab. Two of which are 'serious' candidates to replace May. And May.... Just an absolute, unmitigated disaster. The Zombie PM. She should be dead so many times over but she just keeps bloody going. She has been so weak and craven and has made so many mistakes, one after another for years: a riduculous and grotesque succession of blunders, calamitous cock-ups and naive misjudgments. At times it has been tempting to have some sympathy for her but one only needs remind oneself that - on top of her tone deaf foolhardiness and apparent retard strength - she is a thoroughly nasty piece of work: the author of the Hostile Environment as home secretary, now self appointed the Messiah of Brexit. The Brexit Martyr.
The unfortunate thing is that 'the country' (England and Wales - not to be confused with Scotland and NI) has become even more badly divided since the vote, largely due to the aforementioned dearth of leadership. People are even more bitter and entrenched. Brexit is crossing the rubicon/ opening pandoras box/ letting the genie out of the bottle/ add your own. Years of tabloid hate and bile, stirred up into a cacophony of shit with added lies and misrepresentations of Brexiteers, and unleashed for the public to wade through in resolving a stupid one sentence question (which was then taken to mean 'hardcore self destruct') . No matter what happens now (Hard or Soft Brexit/ Revokation/ 2nd vote), a great many people will be bitterly disappointed and the UK will be and is irrevocably damaged, in all senses. UK politics is/ has veered to the extremes and it's all so desperately tragic. The prospect of the EU elections taking place in this type of febrile, manic UK is alarming. The absolute cunts the UK might send to disrupt things...
The best thing that could be done now is to call the whole fucking disaster off, apologise to the world and go off and work on reforming your electoral law (I recommend PR-STV). But this would not address the aforementioned divisions. Another limitation is that both May and Corbyn are determined to deliver Brexit. May's Party hates 'her Brexit' and Corbyn's Party hates Brexit, but together these shiesters may get it over the line. May wants to finally deliver Brexit and have a legacy of Delivering the Will of the People, and Corbyn wants May to take the blame so he can sweep in and reconstruct Britain as a socialist utopia.
From one perspective, the UK should probably have their Brexit, so they can see the truth of their place in the world - the full horror of it - before having a good think and quickly rejoining the flock a chastened and commited member. This would be quite ruinous though for all of us in the UK and Ireland, and to the EU more widely to a lesser extent.
So what should really happen is a second vote, but even that most likely won't resolve matters. There won't be a great enough margin for remain to definitively put the issue to bed insofar as it may swing to 55/45 Remain, which would naturally leave the call for 'a best of three'. But the EU won't live in this purgatoric stasis with the UK forever, waiting for good housekeeping, they have their own business to consider. Time is running out.
We are all sick to death of Brexit but this will drag out for many, many more years more should a50 not be revoked. I don't see that happening.
