Kicking out all the tent poles at the wedding isn't as beneficial as one might think.
So, Brexit. You remember Brexit, right? Breaking up is hard to do.
With less than 18 months to go before Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union, and with British businesses growing increasingly concerned about the future, this was the moment Prime Minister Theresa May hoped for a breakthrough in the paralyzed negotiations on the process known as Brexit.
Instead, she is fighting a tense battle to stop the talks from collapsing.
My understanding is that she was not the front and center person lighting dynamite sticks to try to bring down the European Union, but she agreed to put on the hard hat to at the very least accomplish Brexit. And it would be dumb to take that role and not foresee the implications of implementing Brexit. I myself think that the EU is a good thing, for all involved. There are compromises, not every segment of very nation benefits. But on the whole I think Brexit is, was, and will always be a bad idea.
Her goal is to keep the negotiations ongoing. Should they falter, and the UK soon find itself in a position less positive than Nigel promised, so be it. I wish them all luck.
