Brexit: How Long Does This Carry On?

Brexit: How Long Does This Carry On?




It's official: Great Britain, the land of studied compromise and the stiff upper lip, has become a political soap opera. Parliament has now twice thrown out Prime Minister Theresa May's long-negotiated deal to leave the European Union, and both of the United Kingdom's main political parties, bruised and sullied, have seen their factions splinter into squabbling sub-factions.
