“U.K. Parliament approves Brexit amendment on replacing Irish backstop”

 

Good God, what long-running farce Brexit has become.

Theresa May has done little else but run around for many months trying to patch together some kind of departure compromise, and she has completely failed on all sides.

It has become tiresome just reading about it all, much of the effort resembling the verbal convolutions of Medieval scholastics, and what a colossal waste of government resources.

Of course, in her party’s case, I suppose there is little else worthwhile they’d be doing anyway. The country has all kinds of ignored problems. Her second biggest activity has been articulating Russophobia, but that is not a very demanding activity, requiring little real effort and less thought.

Surely, David Cameron, the man who left this mess as his legacy, must go down as one of the most incompetent prime ministers in British history.

It was all completely unnecessary. The problems were doubtlessly predicted by experts, if you bothered listening to them.

The entire effort, from Cameron to May, does give us a textbook example of how pointlessly destructive governments can be.
