It’s always the timing that’s the hardest part to forecast:

If it wasn’t already abundantly clear that England is dead, this should suffice to prove it. The transfer of national sovereignty to Brussels is merely a formality. But don’t be too smug, Americans. Your turn is coming fast. Can you honestly say that the Magic Negro and the Lizard Queen wouldn’t like to do the same?

Keep in mind that Congress has already learned from ramming the banking and automotive bailouts down the throats of an unwilling public that they can ignore the electorate with impunity.
