LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – The last three years in the United Kingdom have meant less than nothing, politically. Even the country’s culture has been in deadlock about Brussels as Theresa May failed to make any real progress on implementing the Brexit referendum result.
Television shows now talk endlessly about Brexit, so do terrible left-wing “comedians”. All the newspapers are Brexit-filled. So are most magazines, to the point where the spring issue of the Salisbury Review boasted on its front cover that it was “80 per cent Brexit free!”
Whereas there should have been somewhat of a line drawn under the question of Britain’s future in the European Union on the morning of June 24th – “dare to dream” and all that – the country has been fractured and wrought with confusion following the appointment by the Conservative Party of a prime minister who campaigned against leaving the EU.
It was as if the Tories wanted to lose, on repeat, for the next decade.
