The country is so evenly split and such trenchant views are held I think we will be arguing about this for years to come. As I see it there are, broadly speaking, 3 possible outcomes:
a) Brexit happens and is a stunning success. Brexiters bang on about it; remainers sulk.
b) Brexit happens and is a stunning disaster. Remainers say “we told you so”; brexiters will say it’s because the country was thwarted from negotiating the proper Brexit it deserved.
c) Brexit somehow doesn’t happen. Remainers breath a sigh of relief (possibly short lived); brexiters go on about how democracy has been undermined etc etc.
I’ve been thinking that this subject is so divisive it has similarities to the Civil War where families and friends were split by fundamentally opposing convictions as to the rights of the monarch and Parliament.
Perhaps the only solution is to partition the country into two parts - say West UK and East UK (other ways of dividing the country are available) with one part remaining within the EU and the other part out of it. Perhaps not such a good idea as we seem currently unable to square the circle that is the Irish border, but it would give lots of mileage for even more debate/argument.
