Looks like the UK has screwed the pooch, but I’m sorry to say it was probably inevitable. As I’ve said before, Brexit made low-key Imperial bigotry a yes-or-no hot-button issue for all elections since, and this is the result. They want out. Let them out. We’re better off without them.
I have been making active efforts not to be reassured by the social media bubble I live in, which seemed very positive about strategic voting to oust the conservatives. It was never going to happen. The establishment doesn’t let elections happen that way and nobody cares what a lunatic Boris Johnson is.
I’ll just go back to feeling cautiously smug about Finland’s progress, keep an eye on Jonathan Pie’s blood pressure, and check in from time to time about the Scottish independence question. Although it’s starting to get to the point of “if they let this happen, they’re going to put up with anything.”
Kind of like the US and Trump, really.
