I think the world is looking on in bemusement at the Brexit process and wondering what on earth is happening in the UK.
I have seen a couple of things that made me smile over the past few days, though Brits may not feel quite the same.
The first one is a concert by the Swedish Church, which was obviously planned quite a while ago…a bye bye Britain Brexit concert
Then there was this horror on television (thank you Sharon W for the giggle)
And then Twitter delivered these two
I work in politics and it seems to be increasingly difficult to get decisions through all over Europe. Sweden had a general election in September but was unable to form a government until late January, despite repeated attempts. Only the looming possibility of an extra general election – in which only the far right would come out ahead – forced the issue and led to a coalition government There have been difficulties forming governments in Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands recently as well – mostly due to the rise of the far right and the increasing number of smaller parties in national parliaments.
My own thought this morning on this on-going shambles:
We were told everybody knows the EU negotiates ‘up to the wire’.
Well, the UK seems to have gone over the wire into no man’s land and found itself in a minefield with signs in a language they couldn’t be bothered to learn.
And so they don’t know where to put their next step!
Ha ha Steve. My sympathies to you for all the uncertainty about Brexit.
