Brexit: The betting on what will happen next

CGP Grey is an Irish American You Tuber and podcaster. He’s done some excellent animated YouTube videos which explain complex issues very quickly. I recommend viewing his masterpiece on what would happen if the USA’s presidential electoral college is tied, and his corker on the Canadian-USA border. They are both priceless.

CGP Grey has now turned his attention to the Brexit options. He talks very fast on this following video. In fact, I don’t remember him talking this fast on any of his previous videos. He talks faster than the actors on West Wing. In 6’57” he beautifully explains the Brexit scenario and the post-Brexit options. It really is brilliant.

  • What happens next is that if article 50 is not triggered the government will collapse and UKIP will become a very much larger political force as the only party willing to trigger full exit. A compromise would suit those who want to save face, but it lasting longer than a single parliamentary term is based on the idea that people will continue voting as they do now. Unfortunately, it will be the progressive parties, that have embraced the EU despite it being essentially a Conservative project Britain, who will take the hit. What all the scenarios in the video ignore is the ability of the electorate to vote people out of office.

    This is brilliant! So funny but, unfortunately, true. However, in the meantime has anyone noticed the brick factory closure? I can remember this happening in the early stages of all of the economic slumps during the Thatcher years so it’s really bad news. Can our party please lobby for more investment in social housing? After all the one nation Tories built lots of housing in the post war years and May seems to be trying to portray herself as that sort of Tory. Even some sort of joint ownership scheme might help if, as I suspect, she is really only interested in people with mortgages.

    @Glenn, UKIP might be a threat to some Labour seats but they have no chance of unseating the Tories. The government needs to delay brexit until everyone has forgotten about it.
