We are into Dunning-Kreuger country now, where nonsense like May's reverberates through Europe with the tinny fear that being America's ex-favourite puppy dog and quaffing deep the dregs of their kool-aide cocktail of exceptionalism is looking bleak at best.
May is showing get true brit grit by hewing so tenaciously to a suicidally stupid decision.
Hopefully this will leave the Tory party in rags, just as Trump's probable impending demise (Go Larry Flynt!) Will do the same to the Republicans over the water.
The EU will have its hands full enough these coming years dealing with the Kurzes, Wilders and Orbans popping up like continental Farages, further illustrating the neoliberal bent the EU has taken up to now.
Two failing, dated institutions wasting time talking past and at each other while huge nigh-insurmountable problems like climate change and mass economic migrations pile up semi-attended to.
Teresa is whistling past the graveyard with her plummy posh pretentions thinking the EU will bow to her irresistible gravitas and consummate political skills,m when all she's doing is enacting the cliché of Britain being a nation of shopkeepers, completely cynical about anything decent the EU stood for while slimply and vigorously undermining it by inferring all its members were as grubbily beholden to austerity and bankster enabling as Britain's attitude to the EU has been, reeking of bad faith for so long now.
Now it's on parade for even the blindest to to see, Dunning meets Kreuger. Strong and stable.
That's the Wimpy's happy meal awaiting us, oh joy!
(Full of mushy peas, sweeds, rutabagas and malt vinegar, yum. Won't have the pesky EU telling us not to feed brains to our cows or fish our seas to death.)
'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
