Brexit chaos

Amidst the chaos surrounding the UK's departure from the European Union—a process dubbed as Brexit—the person I feel most sorry for is Prime Minister Theresa May. Being a “remainer” herself, she is now having to deal with the expectation of negotiating a smooth Brexit deal. She needs a majority consensus from parliamentarians.

She isn't responsible for the chaotic situation her country seems to be in. It was a mess she inherited from the erstwhile Prime Minister David Cameron, who triggered the referendum over whether to remain in, or leave the EU.

Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage, the two leading “leave” campaigners, are keeping a low profile, distancing themselves from taking any responsibility for the whole mess that they created. Meanwhile, as the PM's deal was defeated resolutely in parliament, the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, had called for a fresh election which was voted down.

It's a textbook example of total political chaos. A smooth Brexit is in the interest of not just the British, but the entire world and its stability. We can only hope that the chaos ends soon and things settle down.
