A great piece analyzing the dilemnas facing the British ruling class. The main problem for it seems to be that if the referendumn was called as a means of putting the European issue to rest, there is now no more consensus among the "main factions," that Brexit can or should be be effectively opposed. This is unlike the US, where three years after his election, Trump is still an outcast, whom the main factions are attempting to sabatoge at just about every turn. If they have moved on from Russiagate hysteria they are now on to a media campaign around "white supremacy" as the means of discrediting him. Of course, the circumstances are not entirely comparable--the British bourgeoisie has one chance to get Brexit right, while the US bourgeoisie will get another shot at Trump in the normal course of its democratic game in about 18 months.
