What Britain has done since 2015 is what Europe did from 1912 to 1914.
But whereas the different opposing factions that caused World War I were on actual opposite sides, the different factions that have caused this mess are all within one country, almost within one party, well they’re certainly within the spectrum of the type of conservatism that harks back to the Empire.
Two different groups of establishment Tories, both drunk on their own arrogance and complacency, who both made historic, fatal decisions.
A group of insane Brexiteer Tories, drunk on their own arrogance, disruptive power, and complacency.
A group of rebel Brexiteers led by UKIP, drunk on their own power of irresponsibility.
The DUP, drunk on their new found power of disruption and irresponsibility on the “mainland” that they have always held in the six counties.
The Tory press, just drunk.
The whole lot of them, constantly at each others throats, completely unprepared, deluded, complacent, arrogant, stumbling head first into the disaster.
The World War stumbling to disaster comparisons don’t end there. Theresa May is reminiscent of Neville Chamberlain - dithering, weak, afraid.
If she had any pride whatsoever, May would go into her cabinet meeting this morning, and gather in a corner Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Liam Fox, David Davis and all the other pathetic, arrogant, deluded, infantile Brexiteer morons, and summarily sack the lot of them. She’d then replace them with Ken Clarke and other pro-EU MPs, and tell the DUP to get fucking stuffed and approach Labour, the Lib Dems, the SNP and whoever else will talk to her, in order to do a deal which would have cross party support and would cut out the dinosaurs.
The she’d call an election and fall on her sword.
The possibility of this happening is 0.
