A hung parliament with a nominal Labour majority propped up by a coalition of anti-Brexit parties is unlikely to speed torwards to the insane car crash fuck-you-Europe May seems wedded to.
It's far more likely that a second referendum would be the price of cooperation. The UK would have to be quite staggeringly and suicidally stupid to vote for Brexit again.
There are plenty of people here who are staggeringly and suicidally stupid in exactly that way - but probably not enough to win twice.
The truth seems to be simpler. The Tories really are quite breathtakingly incompetent, and quite unable to do anything at all without falling over their own feet while making a sad farting noise.
I realised this earlier in the week, when I considered their record. Except for CEO pay and asset inflation, not a single thing about the UK has improved over the last seven years.
They've trashed the economy, education, the NHS (and are trying to trash it some more), housing, job prospects, domestic security, and the UK's international reputation.
It's a very impressive record. A final failure to push through a Brexit disaster they themselves created would be the perfect note for them to end on.
Letting the fiction that Labour caused the financial crisis (especially that they caused it in a way the Tories would not have - not enough regulation is not a reason to vote Tory) was truly catastrophic and will hurt for decades.
Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
