    Toles is so sharp. Unlike most of the cartoons offered on this blog – from gocomics.org – this one was drawn over 2 years ago – just about a week after that lying referendum. Still right on target.

    Brits proved themselves dumber than Americans…and that ain’t easy.

    “Good luck to the U.K. representatives implementing a thing that doesn’t exist and explaining, ‘You have voted on something based on lies.’” French President Emmanuel Macron after the historic defeat for British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan yesterday. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/as-brexit-deal-goes-down-in-flames-exasperated-europe-wonders-what-the-britons-want/2019/01/16/33abb552-1979-11e9-a804-c35766b9f234_story.html?utm_term=.6eb070393afe

      “Theresa May lost the Brexit vote because Brexit was a lie : May was tasked with negotiating a deal that neither she nor anyone else could deliver on.” (VOX 1/15/19) https://www.vox.com/world/2019/1/15/18184172/brexit-vote-what-happens-next-theresa-may “…Barring a dramatic and unexpected change, there are two plausible outcomes to the Brexit drama. Either the UK exits the EU without a deal by the March 29 deadline, which virtually every expert agrees would result in economic catastrophe, or else the country pulls back from the brink and decides to remain in the EU. These options aren’t what the Brexiteers promise, but it’s difficult to envision any other ones after the failure of May’s deal. To quote another famous Conservative prime minister: There is no alternative. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_is_no_alternative

    Faltering Brexit talks limp on amid UK political impasse (AP April 29, 2019) https://apnews.com/940b80c7056d477893b47d195fefc823 “…“We have a 31st of October deadline and nothing has changed, and there is no sense in which anything is changing. There is no really good strategy to get out of this situation, and that’s why the parties are not clamoring to get back into the mire.” (Victoria Honeyman, a politics lecturer at the University of Leeds).
