"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

With Friends Like These....

Everything I've heard about Brexit on BBC World Service is that a "no-deal" Brexit (a/k/a, "crashing out" of the EU) would wreck the British economy and severely damage the world economy, in no small part because it would end all trade between Britain and the EU immediately (or else why does the EU have trade agreements as the EU?).  And then there's the question of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland; if that suddenly closes, it's The Troubles all over again.

But sure, Trump, Jr. is right, his dad's sage advice should have been followed.  And what was that again?  Oh, yeah:  "Crash out!"  Which is, not coincidentally, what John Bolton is telling Britain to do.  Noted international economic experts, all three.

With friends like these, Teresa May doesn't need any enemies.

(On the other hand, it explains this:

That fish just keep on rottin'!)
