Burn the prophet!
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

The U.K. needs the EU more than vice versa.

Well! May's decision is interesting. This is where we can claw back to reality and sanity.

Or...do the opposite.

The student revolution! Which gives us a tiny strand of hope in what is otherwise a depressing day in the UK. May won't get as strong a mandate as she hoped for... But she'll still come through because there aren't any actual human beings running against her.

I'm watching Scotland -- which is going conservative in what we'll go ahead and call The Disaster That Will Destroy Generations.

Wasn't she the one that called for this stupid election/referendum in the first place?

Yes. Her gamble was based on the idea that none of the other parties were actually able to put up a human being to oppose her. Thereore, she would return with a decisive majority and get a mandate that would propel the UK through a "Hard Brexit" when the talks commence 10 days from now.

While this trend did show up here and there (most notable in Scotland), the plan backfired. This is largely because she failed to understand the voting patterns that led to Brexit in the first place -- the British people are so dissatisfied that they've turned voting into a protest action. The government's failure to understand that the majority of the people do not actually want Brexit has led to this.

Unfortunately, a fair portion do want Brexit and they still sort of won the day. It would have been better if Labour got the chance to form a government. But, at least, May and the Hard Brexit are no more.

So the new problem is that the Brexit talks are imminent, and May's inner circle is doing their best "rats on a sinking ship" impression, with a majority of her party calling for her resignation. So if she steps down on the eve of the Brexit talks... Well, that'll be fun. Because Boris Johnson is the odds-on bet for stepping in. Which, if that happens, sort of feels like it might have been the plan all along in that Manchurian Candidate kind of way.

So, this is the whole, "Use Trump to get elected, then let Trump self-destruct so we have Mike Pence in the Executive office doing what we *really* want to do."

Fiction become reality becomes conspiracy becomes status quo.

Also dramatically falling apart today is May! Her refusal to meet with Grenfell Tower victims was...a weird choice. Now being booed and facing protests and occupations of government buildings.

I think we're seeing the last days of May.
