I, personally, haven’t been paying much attention to Brexit in recent years so here’s a comment from a reader who is at least slightly less clueless than me:
So apparently something big is happening with Brexit, and it looks like it will probably happen, with footnotes. Is that right?
Can someone from the UK help me here: Brexit has generated so much derangement and Sturm und Drang that I though when it finally came to some sort of resolution there would be a Russiagate level acceleration of hysteria.
And yet when I look at the left and right and center UK newspapers (as well as the WaPo and NYT), its just another daily news item. Why the sudden calm resignation on both sides?
Are the winners not sure they won and the losers not wanting to acknowledge their loss? Is is a down-the-middle compromise that nobody is that excited or angry about. Or what?
