25th April 2019
UK politics has resumed after the Easter break, and Brexit is still broken.
The governing party wants a new leader, but like St Augustine, not yet.
The cross party talks appear to be at cross purposes.
The three ends of Brexit – Deal, No Deal, Revocation – loom and each has a plausible pathway.
But we are no nearer making any positive choice for any of the three ends available.
And things may now get worse.
The upcoming European Parliament elections may inject a destabilising agent into the current politics of Brexit.
The performance of the Brexit party, and of other parties, may lead to political decisions being made which otherwise would not be made.
What these decisions may be cannot be forecast with any certainty.
But the impact on Brexit of the European Parliament elections is a known unknown.
Like a disaster or horror movie twenty minutes from an expected end, something new may cause a shock. (And this may mean there has to be a sequel.)
After the Brexit break, Brexit is still broken, and it all may get worse.
Thank you for reading me on this new(ish) blog, where I am hoping to blog almost daily.
