Damn I'll almost miss her. She made the political gridlock in Washington seem almost not as bad. I swear she has come off as one of the most ineffective leaders since... well Trump.

May remained this long because she didn't want to step down as a failure of a PM. Too bad for her that she didn't want to do the one thing that would have served the UK the most, that way she could have been remembered in a more positive way. But since she didn't want to do that one thing, she has no other option than getting out before embarrassing herself even more. The Brexit story will go through more extensions because on one side you have the UK who is aware how hard it is to work out good deals as a small island, and on the other side you have the EU who doesn't want to lose the UK because of its importance. Both parties have a strong interest in postponing the Brexit even if it makes them look ridiculous.

May should have greenlit a second referendum to serve the people of the UK. Another 'yes' for the Brexit would have meant that the problematic situation stays as it is (so nothing to lose), a 'no' would have resolved the whole thing.

EU already looks ridiculous, giving into the UK time and time again with extensions.
I actually think this is the last one, if by Oct the UK hasnt figoured things out, they will crash out then.

WTO rules, Hard Boarder/customs on Ireland, ect.

The EU giving in is very much self serving. The EU doesn't want to leave. Extending will lead to either a better deal for the EU or a canceling of Brexit. EU would be stupid to force a hard Brexit. It's ironic how the EU cares more about UK citizens than the UK.

There's something appropriate about Brexit being scheduled for Halloween.

Brexiteers, in my observation, have had two motivations in connection to the departure policy: a desire for reduced immigration and a desire for foreign trade policies more favorable to the British (...okay, English) workers. Setting aside the moral issue I take with the former goal to focus on the latter, the stupidity of Brexit is that it will have the exact opposite real-world impact, and we have already seen as much quite clearly in the harsh terms that both the Trump Administration here in the U.S. and also Xi Jinping's government in China have demanded upon the UK vis-a-vis any new, post-Brexit trading deal that may be reached (example). What the tougher stances of the U.S. and China toward the UK in this new atmosphere demonstrate is the reality that leaving the European Union means that the UK will have MUCH LESS bargaining power in the future, NOT more! The UK will emerge from this process much weaker, not stronger. That is why Brexit, and especially a hard Brexit, has been the policy most favored and advanced by Russian intelligence.

And the millionaires, as there's the fraction of Brexiteers who wants to turn the UK into a giant tax haven for themselves. But since that's not possible anymore under the EU (Luxembourgs and even Switzerlands (due to bilateral contracts with the EU) Banking secret for instance is almost gone), they choose to leave.



Good riddance to Teresa May, she was one of the worst UK PMS of all time. Boris Johnson will be entertaining and interesting UK PM on par with Donald Trump. Boris Johnson = Donald Trump. Both of them are bumbling idiots that stumbled into the roles as US President and UK PM. Boris Johnson just like Donald Trump is a total idiot and no one really takes either of them seriously. We are going too be entertained with the numerous gaffs and stupid comments that Boris Johnson will say during his role as PM. Boris has no idea what to do in regards to Brexit because he is a clueless idiot.
