One take, amongst many no doubt:
It's a bloody disaster (basically) - economically, culturally, psychologically. Any-ology.
While there's a very strong argument that the European Commission is not much more than the lapdog of hypercapital, the European Union is a wonderful thing and I am still in shock that we appear to be leaving (& maybe even taking this grand experiment down with us).
Nonetheless there's some heavy politics plating itself out today, and the opposition (Labour really) were last week very clear to let the Tories destroy themselves, distraction free.
There's been growing momentum for a final Peoples Vote on either May's deal or Remain - this scenario looks likelier by the moment. I would also still presume that if an election is called, both Labour and Conservative will still call for Brexit.
This whole shitshow is a way off being resolved IMO - and tbh I don't think we can ever go back. Equally, many of our Euro partners are very understandably heartily sick of us as a nation. And who can blame them, I feel the same.
My €2 anyhow...
P.S. The BBC is sadly not a news org anymore, they only deal in propaganda (think Fox w. Manners:)
