Brexit is going to get so much worse.  All of Europe will get sucked down a UK-shaped hole.

Yes but will anything be done to fix the monumental fark up or will it be kicked down the road for future generations to deal with?

The British didn't end their WW2 rationing until July 4 1954.

Looks like their Boomers will have to actually live out their "Back in my day..." stories in their twilight years.

No. The UK as we know it will cease to exist. Scotland will join the EU as an independent country and Northern Ireland via a reunified Ireland.
England and Wales? They asked for it, saw how utter shiat it was and even begged for more.

This is where I say, once again, personal union with Norway. Say that the Queen has not fulfilled her duties to Scotland as Queen of Scotland, since Scotland wanted to be in the EU, and therefore the throne is vacant, and then offer it to King Harald. Scotland and Norway have a lot in common, and half of it used to be Norwegian anyways :)

I keep saying have NI and Scotland just join the Republic of Ireland.

They both have Celtic backgrounds and they fookin' hate the English. It backdoors Scotland into the EU without having to meet some of the requirements they currently don't. Ireland gains... well, mostly a bunch of sheep and a different style of whisky, but also they get to really piss off Downing St. and I'm sure that's enough.

The injuries caused by alternate heavy eye rolling and side-splitting fits of laughter will probably cause a strain on the local healthcare systems.

More seriously, having a massively destabilised neighbour with access to a decent sized military and well-oiled propaganda machines telling them that everything is really your fault and not theirs will likely lead to some problems.

Of course they will, you'll see a return of the troubles if this shiat doesn't get sorted smoothly. It would be in GB's best interest to just let Ireland re-unify at this point.

I was about to write that the UK are bound to let that happen through the GFA, an international treaty, but then I remembered what the special advisor Dominic Cummings had to say about honesty and the UK respecting such treaties:

They're already doing that in Northern Ireland, placating a potentially violent minority who are against the current Northern Ireland Protocol.

It's all about distraction for them, whatever will distract from the balls they made it brexit, is fair game - violence included

It's unlikely he's given up -- he usually steers well clear of any article like this that decimates his view so thoroughly.

Certainly, the Chairman of the Office of Budget Responsibility definitively stating that Brexit will be worse than COVID for the economy is just the kind of thing that makes Sir Brexit bravely run away.

Not fair on the Welsh. They only reason Wales voted to leave the EU is because of the large number of English migrants. It was the nearest to the actual result for the UK as a whole in that 52.5% voted to leave. Kick out the English and the result would have been a remain win although a bit closer.

Fair enough. They get thrown in the mix with the English as leavers, but that is an explanation. They received significant funding for rural development projects, so there must be some people who understood the benefits of being taken care of Brussels when the Tories can't be arsed to do it.

Well, Sinn Féin's whole raison d'être is reunification and it has topped most polls recently. The last one I saw gave them a ten point lead. It's also the biggest single party in the Dáil.
