May has the job in Britain for the same reason McConnell has the Senate leadership job here.  No one else who wants it could get it.

I also find myself wondering if this whole mess will mean the recovery of the LibDems in the next election, at least in areas that voted Remain.  I can't imagine Remain voters being very happy with either Labour or the Conservatives right now.

Neither can I imagine Leave voters being happy with the two main parties, but I don't know if that's going to translate into unenthusiastic turnout or a move towards UKIP.

Oija all you want.  We no nothing until March 30, and maybe then nothing also.  But delaying past March 29 will piss off a lot of people.  Hopefully not violently.  But a good Yellow Vest revolt would be interesting.

Britain voted for a delay and against a second referendum.

But as long as it is just a sought after extension and it isn't (yet) agreed upon by every single one EU nation:

The deadline is still 15 days.

For now.

It isn't over until it is over.  But look at it clearly.  Someone is making money off of this current situation.  The betting in GB and the financial markets (more crooked gambling).  They have only decided that there is more money to be made from the chaos (volatility) of the Brexit/non-Brexit than a clear result either way ;-)

Not either/or.  Chaos capitalism works great in betting and finance.  Money can't be made, unless there is volatility.  Sometimes you have to create volatility.

See say, Brexit is really about The City (of London) the oldest multinational corporation.

the lib dems haven't had any power or influence in the uk since the early 1900s. They've been riding off the back of the other two parties and even when in a coalition they were the nobodies just used to raise the seating for the Conservatives, which is so fucking funny considering a liberal party joined with a conservative one whos values were dynamically opposed.
this was also when I stopped voting, since back then I believed in the lib dems liberal principles until they joined hands with the party I'd never vote for, still believing that old bs about 'even if your party doesn't win, its the fact you voted for someone that counts'. Ha!

So how about Finland and now Denmark collapsing?  How is that fly in the post-modernist ointment feeling now? It isn't just France, Italy, Catalonia ...

The Celts; Scots, Irish, Welsh have always sided with France.  The last 200 years are exceptional in that long history.  But that was a Catholic monarchial France.  Ready for no-go ban-luis, yellow-jackets, and Robespierre?
