  1. It’s good news that ‘a coalition of the willing’ have finally mustered enough support across all parties (across the aisle as we say) to block usurping the parliamentary democracy in the U.K and stop the ‘madness’ of the U.K. crashing out of the EU in a ‘no-deal Brexit.’

  2. Remainers may yet lose the fight as Boris could win a general election and send the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal. As a democrat, however, I will take comfort that such an eventuality would stem from a well-established, albeit flawed, democratic process. When I look at the US, the most troubling aspect of all things Trumpian, is how people have sacrificed the rules of the game in favour of winning. That is the surest path to a country’s longer-term decline. Stupid decisions can be reversed. The decline of institutions, not so much.
