Since the Brexit vote in 2016 I have been hoping against my better judgement that the Brits will be successful and unshackle themselves from the stinking corpse of the Holy Roman Empire. But everyone I read seems either more pessimistic than I am or is gaslighting us into the hopelessness of escape. Thank you, Conrad Black, for an opposing and reasoned opinion. I realize that Black is an ally of Theresa May but that doesn’t mean he’s wrong or that she won’t be able to provide Brexit. she knows the voters want it and she knows that the majority of her Tories are against it. She has to negotiate the difference and then hope to run out the clock once the EU negotiations fail to provide a satisfactory “Soft Brexit.” I hope he’s right. I believe there’s less than three months to the end date. Fingers crossed.
