So the latest news in the happy horror show of British politics is that the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is going to break the law and not ask for an extension to article 50 should one be required in October. Now whether this is true or not (I have to say this has the fingerprints of spin operations all over it but nowadays who knows?) it shows the depths we are descending into. How did we get here? Who is to blame?
I think the best answer to both of those questions can be answered by looking into the mirror. We all are. We all were too complacent with too many things in the past. Politics had become some rich kids toy thing rather than having any real consequences (this was never the case in reality but to the rich kids running the country they never saw that.) . We never engaged and we laughed and went back to our apps and listicles. I don’t think anyone is laughing now.
How will all this end? I have no idea but the next few weeks are going to test the British state to its core in a way it hasn’t been tested in centuries. I’m not looking forward to the whole experience.
