Sneak is right. The Irish dilemma is insoluble. There is no “someone” who can make a “decision,” because Parliament is sovereign and Parliament wants none of the options on offer.

Looks like the next step is an election, which won’t give BJ a mandate, or probably anyone else.

This is a long way from being over.

A positive gloss, what we’ve seen this year is the British constitution actually working, preventing the executive branch running rogue policies which don’t command the will of Parliament - May or BJ.

It’s a good example.

I enjoy reading the occasional Guy Trebay piece, another writer with whom I first became acquainted via the Village Voice.

 

This current one, about the life and times of Nina Griscom (with whom I first became acquainted via the old Food Network), is no exception.  Though it does end up being sadder than I expected.
