    Default Brexit - the view from Australia

    https://www.lowyinstitute.org/public...tish-brexiting

    "To imagine that the Anglosphere could be an organising principle for British foreign policy, however, is nuts. Frankly, the Anglosphere isn't interested."
    "But the relationship with Britain will never be central to Australian foreign policy. It is in Asia that Australia must make its way."
    Hard Brexit now!

    They're saying any plan for "Empire 2" is a pile of poo.

    And of course Britain's plan was always for "Empire 2".

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
