Brexit

Wait, Theresa May made that clown foreign minister? And fired George Osborne?

Jesus, what an awful way to begin her term. And I thought she was reasonable.

Really. Boris Johnson. BORIS JOHNSON. I thought we were out of the woods with him.

Europe is no longer allowed to pretend that the US is the crazyland of Western democracy, unless we elect Boris's buffoon-pal Trump.

I thought she was the furthest thing from reasonable, but I know little of her. Just what I've read on her voting record.

She reminds me of Dolores Umbridge.

I did almost no research on her before today so I suppose it's not terribly surprising that the little research (i.e. read 25% of her Wikipedia page) I did gave me the wrong image.

Hem-hem.

Of course Tone is the one person who likes BoJo.

so, unless the decision is overturned by the Supreme Court Appeal, it looks like Parliament will have to decide on Article 50, good news for democracy at least as any kamikaze decisions will be scrutinized and debated...

the countdown is on.

i don't think england and scotland are coming out the other side of this united anymore. it'll be interesting to see how the coronation of george vii (charles) goes without any scottish involvement - the last time an english sovereign was crowned without simultaneously being crowned sovereign of scotland was elizabeth the first in 1559.

Speaking of which, in such an event, does Scotland go the way of modern times, or do they crown a monarch?

the only monarch they could crown with any kind of conceivable historical legitimacy would be from the stuart dynasty. the last stuart king, james ii/vii was deposed in 1688 by his protestant daughter and her dutch husband because he was a catholic and was raising his newborn son (the heir to the throne) as a catholic too. the last direct descendant of this royal line of the stuarts died over 200 years ago. the most senior member of the house of stuart now, who is not a direct descendant of any scottish or british monarch, is the duke of bavaria.

so unless the 83 year-old duke of bavaria ends up becoming king francis ii of scotland, they're going to be a republic.

There's really no need for monarchies in the 20th century, let alone the 21st. I would hope not.

Wasn't debating the need.

Also, nothing stops them from maintaining Lizzie as their queen (unless she rejects the crown).

not a chance in hell a newly fully-independent scotland is going to ask a monarch who rules from london to be their head of state.

Disagree, and I imagine that's a divided (though less likely favorable) topic among Scots.
