The Brexit debate needs to be closed and we should leave in an orderly manner with a deal. However the EU wasn't and isn't the prime issue facing this country. The country is wrecked and its political system is fundamentally disconnected from the people too. Perhaps it needed this ugly Brexit debate to really prove it and deliver the catastrophic verdict on the Tories and Labour. The source of the resentment is deep and genuine but whoever the Tory Party leader is, he or she won't be able to deliver on national inequality, poverty and insecurity. The Labour party may yet emerge from this process in a better shape even if the Tories do manage to get us out of the EU by October 31st and the Labour Party had committed to a second vote.
