    Typical small turnout for a referendum combined with a Labor defense pallid enough to match any Democrat campaign Stateside leads this nation into the abyss of nationalism. Feckless!

    (Guardian, UK Tue 24 Sep 2019 08.55 EDT):
    “The supreme court has delivered a comprehensive demolition of Boris Johnson’s government and its handling of Brexit. The unanimous judgment of the 11 justices, announced by Lady Hale this morning, amounts to a root and branch rejection of the prime minister’s attempts to rule without parliament, to take Britain out of the European Union by 31 October without a deal, and to contrive a premature general election. The judgment was incisive and without any waffle. It was very consciously written in the best tradition of British constitutional law, of which parliamentary sovereignty is the foundational rock.” https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/sep/24/supreme-court-judgment-sounds-trumpet-failed-prime-minister

    During a rambling speech to a half-empty United Nations General Assembly chamber, about the risks and rewards of technology, Boris Johnson compared the Brexit process to the torment of Greek mythological figure Prometheus, who was chained to a rock as an eagle pecked out his liver every day for eternity. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/video/news/boris-johnson-compares-brexit-to-a-character-in-greek-mythology-who-spent-eternity-having-his-liver-pecked-by-an-eagle/

    “What happens next with Brexit could make or break the UK economy” https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/08/business/no-deal-brexit-uk-debt/index.html
    “The chances of Britain leaving the European Union with a deal on October 31 are fading fast. That’s likely to leave the country facing a general election which could lead to a ‘no deal’ Brexit or a new coalition government led by leftwinger Jeremy Corbyn that would give voters the chance to remain in the European Union.
    Business hates the chaos that would accompany the first of those two scenarios. It would prefer Britain to remain in the European Union but has deep misgivings about Corbyn’s tax and nationalization agenda. A new report published Tuesday by the independent Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), an economic research institute, in association with Citigroup, examines the economic consequences of both potential outcomes.”
