Despite not even being from the UK, my newspaper (and political commentators, etc) are talking about what's happening in the UK, with May failing to get support for a deal.
Why is this such a big deal? I fail to understand it.
There are 2 options: 1) some sort of deal or 2) no deal. Nobody wants no-deal: The economy would break overnight, companies would flee, trade would collapse. Everybody knows this
So it stands to reason that regardless of how long it takes May to get a deal, a deal will happen, because all she has to do is wait until deadline and then say
All-right peeps, I tried my best, here's my last deal, and it's either this, or no-deal. Your choice
and then everyone will vote for her deal, even if they don't like it.
So why are the current on-goings in UK such a big talking point?
The analogy I would make is if there was a person with only chicken in their fridge, and they don't want to eat chicken, so they look for other food in their house, but there is no other food. So they are starving and starving and they consistently fail to find other food. This situation is not a big deal, because we all know that once this person gets really hungry and out of options, they will eat that chicken in the fridge.
Yet the exact same thing is happening in the UK (May's deal is the chicken), and everybody is talking about it? Why?
