Sounds like Brexit is proceeding just like everyone expected - everyone except the idiots who voted for it.

It's almost as if the government has no clue what the fark they are doing

But it's not total collapse of the UK economy, so that means ALL Brexit critics were wrong and it's a total success because reasons.

I'm not a very smart man, but wouldn't it have been easier to negotiate British issues with the EU from within the EU?

Where have all the people gone who claimed that brexit was a fantastic idea? Why aren't they here talking about how rich and prosperous we'll be?

Don't you get it ? It's totally like buying a car. Your position is stronger when you can back out of the deal and such as !

Duke of Madness Motors: Sounds like Brexit is proceeding just like everyone expected - everyone except the idiots who voted for it.


I didn't expect the Tories to be this bad at it. My expectations for them were not high, but I figured they'd be able to manage basic coherency at least. May calling her snap election has to go down as one of the most spectacular political blunders ever. Instead of the 'strong and stable' government we were promised, it has been epic clownshoes ever since. And It's not just confined to their bungling of Brexit. This was yesterday:

- Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was under pressure to quit for remarks he made about a British-Iranian woman falsely imprisoned in Iran for spying that could wind up landing her more jail time.

- International Development Secretary Priti Patel was also in trouble for having unsanctioned meetings with Netanyahu and keeping them secret from the Foreign Office and Downing Street.

- Theresa May's deputy was subject of a hearing about alleged inappropriate behaviour and possession of porn on government computers.

- There's the ongoing sexual harassment scandal that's taking down Ministers across Westminster. This has included her Defence Secretary Michael Fallon. May is also under pressure for the way she replaced him, handing the role to a loyal aide with neither military background nor experience running a government department.

Even propped up by the DUP support she bought, May's position is so weak she's conceding Parliamentary votes uncontested to avoid outright humiliating defeat. She's caught between competing Brexit factions within her own party, either of which would bring her down if not for the risk someone from either the other faction or named Jeremy Corbyn could end up taking her place.

I expected the Tories would spend some time struggling with the gulf between the fevered-dream rhetoric of Britain's negotiating position and the political reality of it. I did not expect them to be so preoccupied with their own domestic political chaos that they still haven't come to terms with it.

I think the Tories and the GOP are suffering from the same disease - they started believing their own bullshiat. You can only paper over the cracks for so long before reality starts intruding.

Combination, I'd say. We definitely have some Tory 'True Believers' who really buy their own bullshiat, particularly all the bluster about glory days of the British Empire. But then there are some whom I suspect do recognise that bullshiat for what it is, but rather than show the backbone to call it out, just keep quiet and let themselves be pulled along by the derptrain for reasons of political expediency.

Our Tories are not quite at the 'pick the biggest idiot we can find to lead us' level of Trump yet. Theresa May has more of a 'McCain taking on Palin in 2008' vibe I'd say. She's never really been a big Brexiteer, still can't even bring herself to say she'd vote Leave, but at crucial power-or-principle moments all too often her spine goes missing.

Oh indeed. Some of the names at the top of the list of favourites to succeed May are horrifying. Personally I'm hoping the combination of his gaffes and naked ambition have burnt too many bridges for Boris, but I'm also far from convinced that's the case.

And then there's Jacob Rees-Mogg, who actually makes Boris seem like a pleasant choice...

Maybe they'll just say "fark it all" and draft Farage. I used to think I had some idea about British politics (for an American) but it sure looks like there's some unknown prion disease eating its way through Tory brains right now.
