The Brexit vote’s been cast. We’re out.
It’s been an angry, ugly aftermath filled with mutual suspicion, insults and growing hatred. Perhaps the divisions have always been there, but recent events have certainly magnified them to the extreme.
Who knows what happens next? Certainly not the Brexiteers themselves, it seems. Most of the main players have already resigned because … well, no-one can tell. Our best guess is that they can’t be bothered to help clean up the mess they created.
As the power vacuum expands, an eager band of replacements are lining up to occupy it. Knives are out in the Westminster bubble as high drama and dirty backstabbing dominate the headlines. It’s a good thing that we don’t have any other important matters like — say — our political and economic future to talk about right now.
