I have sympathy with the ‘Deltapoll’ quoted here, where 2049 people (I suspect that must have been the maximum number of UK adults they could persuade to answer…) when asked the really quite logical question “Do you think Brexit will ever end?” 41%, the majority, thought it would, 35% thought it wouldn’t and 24% didn’t know.
Of course only the 24% can really be right.
But for the rest one thing we do know is that if or when we finally exit – on whatever basis – it may indicate that Britain has been a little dilatory in its resolve but in fact that will just be the end of the beginning of Brexit. There will need to be five years and probably a decade of negotiations just to get us back anywhere near where we were in our relations with others.
In that sense the majority, who seem to think Brexit will end sometime soon are sadly deluded.
To make it go away in what will probably be a further storm of protest we need a referendum, and to make it all stop Article 50 has to be withdrawn.
And if we do Brexit by chance or (when looking at this interlocking web of moneymaking deceit that includes the BBC) by intention, without proper regard for the Good Friday Agreement and Northern Ireland requires further military intervention, then that will be an even more perfect storm – for both the UK and Ireland.
Even journalist, Peter Oborne, who campaigned for Brexit, has to admit in this 9 minute video focussing on the situation in Ireland, that he is a remainer now:
Surely, it really is time that the self harming idea of Brexit was ended.
