On Dec. 22, weeks before the unprecedented parliamentary defeat of Theresa May’s government on Jan. 15, the London “Economist” featured a column by the pseudonymous “Bagehot” entitled “The Elite that Failed: Britain’s Political Crisis Exposes the Inadequacy of its Leaders.”
He wrote, “In the past year, the British body politic has endured an astonishing list of maladies. The cabinet has lost a foreign secretary and two Brexit secretaries, not to mention lots of lesser fry. Parliament has voted to hold the government in contempt. The Conservative Party has held a vote of no confidence in the prime minister and left her badly wounded. And it is going to get worse. There is no parliamentary majority for any Brexit deal, and no way out of the impasse that won’t break promises–and possibly heads.
