Subj: What's happening in the British parliament?
Posted: Fri May 24, 2019 at 01:03:14 pm EDT (Viewed 172 times)


I'm by no means up to speed on Brexit, so please let me know if I'm completely out to lunch. But with the third failure of Teresa May's proposal for Brexit, and her subsequent resignation, it feels like parliament is extremely dysfunctional. They can't agree on anything, so literally nothing seems to be getting done. And without agreement, it seems inevitable that Britain is heading towards a No-Deal Brexit, which would be a disaster. I feel like whoever is May's successor will have the same challenges and the same result - a hung jury.

Is there a way out? Does parliament secretly (or overtly) want a second referendum, ignoring the democratic will of the people? Will a second referendum even produce a different result? Is there even time for any of that?

I know some of the regulars around here are citizens of the UK, so I'd appreciate your opinions.

Thanks in advance.




And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
