Phyllis Beveridge Nissila
I rarely wander un-chaperoned into the mine-field of British politics because I am not an historian per se and not a Brit. But on occasion a blog reader from the U.K.* will enlighten me as to what is happening in the struggling Brexit Movement by sending over articles from those who are British historians and political analysts and by sharing his “on the scene” observations.
The news from the other side of the Atlantic is complex, to say the least, involving the various leaders and political entities who comprise the British Parliament with its varying views on the Movement. However, there are certain similarities between our disparate political systems. This post reflects on one that I would put this way:
Where are the grown-ups when we desperately need them?
I hope that we in the U.S. do not go further along our own road to irreparable damage. It will take diligence, prayer, and every bit of recourse we have. Best of luck this week over there.
Yes Phyllis, and I would add that the sabotage of Brexit began at an early stage. We are now witnessing the results of three years of chicanery by politicians who cannot bring themselves to honour the democratic vote for the United Kingdom to leave the EU. Parliament has brought itself into disrepute and made this nation a laughing-stock. There is widespread anger and dismay among the people which will remain embedded in society, and irreparable damage has been done to the democratic process.
