Good, hopefully it proves to be a fatal one.

We've been saying this for years, it's not the UK in trouble, it's the EU.

I have mixed feeling about the concept of the EU. It would be hypocritical of me as an American to deny that federalism can work and make for a robust super country. On the other hand the EU set up is horrific /especially/ from my American view. There is no ballance and no way to remove or revoke. The whole thing seems set to ensure a governing aristocracy and labrynthian bureaucracy. So it seems I am not a fan of European federalism. For Britain I think what is as encouraging as leaving the EU is the chance to get its liberal house in order. Freedoms and liberal traditions have been flagging there of late with internet policing, surveillance, and refusal to police minorities. While not helped the by the EU outlook this has been a British created problem. The attitude the carried Brexit must continue on to deliver a liberal revival.

For the UK it's like cutting off a necrotic arm. Bad, but survivable. For the EU it's like a stab to the gut that won't close.

the EU made the mistake of concentrating their power. it failed because they tied their Congress to Population levels too easily. forcing Immigration to occur in A literal fight for the Biggest chunk of Legislature. they should have use different metrics.
