    It's pretty scary that an illegitimate and insane vote to leave the EU which no longer commands a majority is being forced through by an insane party which also no longer commands a majority. Both of these things are in such a precarious position that the vested interests clinging on to power won't go to the country and ask if they still want them (and thus gain the mandate and majority they need to do it properly) - cos they know that it doesn't. The upshot, we are led by people we don't like into doing something we don't want and that everyone who knows anything about it says will be a disaster.
    which seems quintessentially British, possibly the most British thing that has ever happened. We're doing it whether anyone likes it or not - because we said we would.

    there's also some link to the puritanism thread here. excess and denial both in crazed full effect, moderate sane pleasure/considerations of the 'good life' absolutely nowhere to be seen.

    I get the link to puritanism sure - as has often been said, it's no longer being held up as something good, it's not even something that will be good in the long run but will bring short term pain. It's pure pain and punishment and these are the only things about it and so presumably they must be the good things about it. It's just self-flagellation.
    I dunno if it's the most British thing ever though. I dunno if it's a particularly British thing (on an individual level or as a nation) though is it to stick to something through thick and thin... I mean, I don't know if British are better or worse than that, it's just that personally it's not something that I think of as a British trait particularly.
