Brexit Complicated #BriFri — 4 Comments

  1. There are many over here equally confused by your presidential election; we watch with interest! And a little concern. Part of the problem with ‘Brexit’ is that it could mean so many things and there appears to be a degree of inertia about sorting this out. Equally, many voters don’t understand their own democracy. The last time we had a constitutional issue this important, we ended up getting rid of our king – maybe I exaggerate a little! Keeping in literary vein, I’ve directed you to Nancy’s Steps this week – maybe you spotted them when you were in London; interesting, but not worth going out of your way for!

  2. A View of the Harbour by Elizabeth Taylor – a very British novel for British Isles Friday. As for Brexit and the court decision yesterday, they were not discussing parliament’s role in the principle of whether we leave the EU (that decision was made via the referendum) But the applicants were arguing that Parliament should be allowed to discuss and give approval to the way in which exit is achieved.
