I'm still very puzzled by what the UK
junta government is trying to achieve. Here's a theory.
While I think it's safe to say they have no long-term plans because they're not smart enough to do long-term planning, they do have the standard
fascist authoritarian populist short-term plan, which is simple:
blame other people.
Blame foreigners, blame the gypsies, blame the Jews or the Muslims, blame remainers, blame experts, blame intellectuals, but blame someone else.
So they need someone to blame for the impending failure of the brexit negotiations, and the economic catastrophe that will engulf
England the UK as a result.
Here's how they will find someone to blame: behave increasingly bizarrely and illegally until the EU finally says 'fuck it' and walks away. Then blame the EU for walking away. Now the economic consequences of a no-deal brexit can be portrayed as being the EU's fault.
We all know where this approach of blaming other people for everything ends up, because we saw where it ended up in the 1930s and 1940s: it ends with camps and ovens.
