In the end, Britain will bottle it when it comes to exiting EU
The British - later rather than sooner - are going to bottle this whole Brexit fantasy when they finally accept they simply can't afford it.
It certainly has been a whirlwind few days across the Irish Sea. A bunch of political mavericks and sundry oddballs have brought the country to the cliff face.
Given the do-or-die stakes involved, it's no wonder saner voices, such as departing Prime Minister David Cameron, refused to activate the infamous Article 50. That would have landed the UK in quicksand - provoking a nightmarish departure from the yoke of Brussels.
