7. Will Brexit Actually Happen?

...Granted, if the EU refuses to budge, other nullification scenarios remain in play. Since the law doesn't rule it out, for instance, parliament might override the referendum.

Conceivably, if that happened, the Leave campaign and its 17 million supporters would then say, "Oh, all right, if you (the more than 35 million who were not Leave supporters) feel that strongly, we'll stay."

Conceivably, the current spasm of paralysis in Westminster will lead to an early general election, with the traditional parties melting down and candidates aligning on Leave and Stay platforms, and the new Stay Party promising another vote with the threshold for Brexit set at 80 (or even 67) percent.

Conceivably, the Stay Party would win the election. That could happen...
