... The self-indulgence across the board is breathtaking
And entirely predictable
I just came across this and thought I'd post it here as an illustration to those that think immigration and racism were not part of the dynamics of Brexit.

I am wondering if anyone on here thinks a 2nd referendum would be a good idea. And if so, why?
As you may have sussed, I voted remain, but I really cannot see the benefit of a further referendum. No way it could again be on a simple leave/stay option. We've done that, so end of. A suggestion has been going around that it should be along the lines of go with X deal/stay. That to me is almost impossible. Firstly the fucking MPs cannot find an acceptable deal. Secondly any deal will be chock full of complexity and to expect the majority of the electorate to actually read the full details of the deal let alone understand all the ramifications would be fanciful. Dealing with that shit is what we vote the politicians in for.
So no, for me we just have to deal with what we've got ourselves in to. Trouble is, we're not dealing with it.
@Catogrande It's ironic that we're now in a position where whether or not we leave with no deal is probably going to be decided by the EU.
How? You just leave. Rip the band-aid off and deal with the consequences. Humans are remarkably adaptable.
For sure. One way or another we'll muddle through, like we always do. My point though wasn't that we couldn't make our own decision but that we likely wouldn't. Not by March 29th anyway and that means it will be the EU's decision. Things might change in the seven working days we have left but I doubt it. Extension is at the mercy of the EU, Parliament has said no to a no deal exit. Whose decision do you think it will be?
Situation is royally fucked!
Now there’s an idea! Get the Queen to dissolve parliament and go all Charles I on the situation to sort it out. Bring back the divine right of Kings (or Queens).
The Tower is still fit for purpose for anyone who disagrees.
But then if historical precedent is anything to go by dear old Brenda gets her head chopped off and we end up being ruled by an aggressive bloke with warts that wants to invade Ireland.
@Catogrande It's ironic that we're now in a position where whether or not we leave with no deal is probably going to be decided by the EU. We haven't done a great job so far of taking back control. Even worse, each EU member has to agree. So Malta, for example, has the ability to totally fuck up our economy. (Although Malta always votes for us in Eurovision so we should be OK.)
But we haven't won Eurovision for years. We are so fucked.
