Takeaways


  • Letting Britons have another vote on Brexit is the only sensible option.

Given an impossible hand, Theresa May has doggedly tried to make the best of it, in a manner that has even endeared her to opponents of Brexit, including this author.

She is right in arguing that, if the goal is to deliver any workable form of Brexit, the half-way house construction she and her team have come up with is the “best deal.”

Of course, it is also true that any such deal is a terrible deal for all of Britain, not just for Scotland or Northern Ireland or the country’s young people.

The only sensible option is to have another people’s vote, to let Britons, now in the know, decide what they want long-term.
