How To Solve The Brexit Dilemma



A variety of impulses motivated the popular decision. Those who favored Brexit told the British people that they were sending huge sums of money to the EU. They said the nation was being overrun with unwanted immigrants. They portrayed the step as an overdue assertion of British sovereignty.

The vote reflected a generalized discontent with the status quo and the common impulse to tell the people in charge to get stuffed.

As one of the politicians who campaigned for Brexit proclaimed, “People in this country have had enough of experts.”

Fortunately, there is a solution to this excruciating dilemma: Let the people vote again. Now that they have contemplated the bleak reality the majority voted for, they would most likely leap at the chance to change their minds.

The British people are now in the position of the prisoner once cited by Winston Churchill “who languished for twenty years in a dungeon until one morning the idea struck him to push the door, which had been open all the time.” Having created the Brexit predicament, they also have a way to escape it.

A tad naive but a good read none-the-less

1. About the only honourable way out of this mess....

...is to have a second referendum with the option to rescind Article 50 and remain in the European Union.

The way that Theresa May and company have handled this has been about as bad as could possibly be imagined. Triggering Article 50 without proper preparation or due diligence, Wasting time on a needless general election, which backfired due to a terrible Tory election campaign, putting ridiculous and impractical red lines into the negotiation, allowing the DUP to have the whip hand over the whole affair and worst of all IMHO failing to stand up to the fantasist wing of the Brexshitters.

2. Not naive. The European Court ruled they didn't have to leave. Its their choice.
