Only One Day Away From Trouble
The UK is far less relevant to the destinies of Christianity than the US, which is why I don't cover it much. When they gave us Brexit they probably did for us the most they could do until Christianity comes back on these shores.
However, yesterday's vote showed this: in the modern times of volatile voters you are never far away from big trouble.
Don't listen to the noise from the leftist MSM and consider than the numbers are far less brutal than they portray: the Conservatives got 42% of the vote (not happened since the Iron Lady) and snatched 13 seats in Scotland (see above) up from… one.
However, the shameless socialist message of Jeremy Corbyn caused an unprecedented mobilisation of the New Idiots, the young bleeding hearts seeking their “feel the Bern” moment. Coupled with obvious mistakes from the Tory leadership, this summed up to a passable defeat for Labour and a big disappointed for the Tories.
That the press touts a party sure to remain in opposition and more divided than a Bosnian village in the Nineties as winners (poppycock: 261 MP up to now smell defeat from Connecticut, only less brutal than in 2015) again tells a lot about the emotional stupidity of our times.
The Conservatives have damaged themselves, but they will stay in power with or without May at the helm. Labour has avoided annihilation playing the good-hearted underdog, but they are nearer to Mars than to power. The new Parliament is certainly more Brexit-oriented than the old one. The only party campaigning for Remain has embarrassed itself, going from quite dead to dead. The anti-Brexit Scottish National Party has been savagely beaten. It is by far not all bad, though thanks to May's arrogance and incompetence it is certainly not the result it could have been.
Still, imagine what a catastrophe it could have become without the two recent terrorist attacks, which certainly benefited the Tories and allowed May to try to look statesmanlike and sure footed for a change.
We weren't very far away from the abyss. I don't think it would have been the end of Brexit (more or less hard) but it would have been chaos as a Socialist madman tries to impose his program on a divided party known for extreme loyalty to their leaders. It would have been a true chaos scenario until the unavoidable next election. Thank God even May's arrogance did not lead to that.
