U.K. election: The New Yorker says it all


I share because I care...

We are all in this world together, UK, France, Europe, united or not, and the rest of the world. We cannot let our right to democracy be destroyed by ourselves, because we use it improperly...

This column in the New Yorker perfectly summarises the situation of the post-Brexit United Kingdom as I understand it - especially the last paragraph:

"In other political systems, the obvious solution would be for the progressive, internationalist parties—in this case, Labour, the Lib Dems, and the S.N.P. —to form an electoral alliance, formal or informal, against the nationalist conservatives. Given the gravity of the situation, and the narrowness of the result in the Brexit referendum, there are strong, perhaps overwhelming, arguments for this to happen. At this juncture, however, it looks like a fantasy".
