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.

Don't know a lot...and Brexit didn't always make the most sense to me though I understand many feelings about what they were forced to do by EU rules.

What I find bad is...they voted for it and their government failed them. That is the bottom lime...they are not enacting the peoples will...a revote is bad...whats to stop a revote on anything you don't agree with.

Its a problem here in the states...one side does something like this and they feel justified or explain it away or say its not what it is. The other side screams your breaking precedent...the law...or custom. And then they turn around and do it themselves when they get the chance and say...well you did it last time.

Maybe a vote to re-enter would work...where if it doesn't pass they just exit.
