The long arm of Brexit has struck again as Prime Minister Theresa May has been forced to resign because she was unable to get her withdrawal agreement enough support from her own party and from Labour and the other parties to pass it through Parliament.Her apparent insistence on placating members of the Tory Eurosceptic wing made approval less likely. Her resignation was clearly an emotional event for Britain‘s second female prime minister and her supporters. It confirmed her dedication and years of service to the country was clearly sincere and heartfelt .She faced an impossible task considering how divided the country and parliament are over Brexit given her negotiating style. But Brexit is a very difficult perhaps intractable question to resolve .
Indeed without a new election or a new decisive referendum based on all the new information that has been revealed by the last few years about the pros and cons of Brexit and more careful regulation of the possible foreign meddling that affected the last referendum and the role of Cambridge Analytica, its quite difficult to see how this question can be resolved. Boris Johnson‘s claim that if he were Prime Minister the United Kingdom would leave by October with or without an agreement is likely to come back to haunt him should he become the new Prime Minister.
