How to Destroy A Country

Brexit's a bad idea in part because the people empowered to make it happen are bad and incompetent people. Increasingly they're shutting out anyone who actually might have any clue about how to make the best of a bad situation.
This is, of course, depressing – especially when the Brexit camp fought under the banner of democracy and sovereignty. Now they hurl insults at opponents who dare question their wisdom and howl down those who dare offer different perspectives on the way ahead. The ballot offered a binary choice without specifics. But ministers refuse to discuss Britain stance on departure deals, while politicians proposing that parliament should have a say are accused of subverting the will of the people.
