Also... it's worth considering that Russia is really fucked. It's the biggest country in the world, with enormous natural resources and a powerful military (although not as strong as it makes out). However... the economy is smaller than Texas - it's approximately the same size as Spain.

Putin is getting away with it at the moment, but this kind of despotism never lasts. The Russian people will just get sick of being poor and overthrow him (or more likely, his successor).

Thinking about it I suppose you only have to look at the Christchurch shootings, or Gemma O'Doherty for that matter, to see how people can have their minds melted by online garbagetalk.

Maybe my real upset is the idea that we wouldn't be in a very, very similar situation if Clinton had won, or that the Brexits (and climate meltdowns) of this world are simply stupid people making "bad" choices rather than the end result of 40-50 odd years of bowing to the markets.

The parliament can override him apparently if they have a common consensus to do so. But otherwise it looks like it's back to the drawing board for the Tory government. I don't think they saw that one coming. There are not to many options at this stage but they have been planning to ask for an extension so depending on the length of that different scenarios could be played out otherwise they must revoke A50 or crash out.

my hot take is that bercow has taken it on himself to sort the shit show out. they can revoke article 50 now to fulfill last weeks vote, and blame him. long term plan hold another referendum. but no saying how that will go since england is broken. useless fucks.
