Or is it all some weird form of self pity?
Schengen is toast!
I have no doubt they will have some successes, but no more and probably less than they could have had within the EU. I also think that Brexit will exacerbate class divisions within England to the point where they won't even end up being a United England. I don't wish them misery, but I think Brexit will be an epic fail and get worse with time. I also can't think of a way in which they could reverse that decline. All in all, a pretty sad demise.

Once the supposed financial wizardry of the City is fully revealed as the racket that it is, (as if rigging Libor weren't enough of a red flag) then the game is pretty much up for the vaunted prowess of overpaid spivs shovelling dirty money into places where it shouldn't belong.
Teresa May is like some old actress pretending the world hasn't moved on from her halcyon youth, delusionally foisting herself on the world stage.
A sad bluff that fools few, I suspect.
(Confirming the British propensity for futile tenacity to the wrong cause even when everyone else has seen the writing on the wall for years.)
If it rubs out the Tories, maybe Brexit will be worth it.
It's their bed, even if we all have to lie in it.
