So, let me get this straight... the leader of the opposition campaigned to stay, but secretly wanted to leave, so his party held a non-binding vote to shame him into resigning. This was so someone else could lead the campaign to ignore the result of the non-binding referendum which many people now think was just angry people trying to shame politicians into seeing they'd all done nothing to help them.

Meanwhile, the man who campaigned to leave because he hoped losing would help him win the leadership of his party, accidentally won and ruined any chance of leading because the man who thought he couldn't lose, did - but resigned before actually doing the thing the vote had been about.

The man who'd always thought he'd lead next, campaigned so badly that everyone thought he was lying when he said the economy would crash - and he was, but it did, but he's not resigned, but, like the man who lost and the man who won, also now can't become leader.

Which means the woman who quietly campaigned to stay, but always said she wanted to leave, is likely to become leader instead.

Which means she holds the same view as the leader of the opposition but for opposite reasons. However, her party's view of this view is the opposite of the opposition's.

The opposition aren't yet opposing anything because the leader isn't listening to his party, who aren't listening to the country, who aren't listening to experts or possibly paying that much attention at all.

However, none of their opponents actually want to be the one to do the thing that the vote was about, so there's not yet anything actually on the table to oppose anyway.

And if no one ever does do the thing that most people asked them to do, it will be undemocratic and if anyone ever does do it, it will be awful.

So now the one who favoured Brexit but kept it secret so it wouldn’t spoil her opportunist plans is soon to get the top job and lead the negotiations with those who secretly wish they hadn’t started the barmy club in the first place.

The probable outcome is that those who didn’t want to leave in the referendum will be placated by the EU offering us the full concessions that those who voted to leave wanted in the first place.

We will then have another referendum so that those who wanted to leave can now vote to stay because we got what they wanted, and those who voted to stay can now vote to leave because they don’t like the idea of us having a Visa system with Australian type points for those who live outside the EU - but EU citizens will still have free movement only if they have a job offer and can fund themselves for 4 years without any UK benefits.

So in a roundabout way – we will all live happily ever after. (Except the Corbyistas of course)

I hope all is now clear

A brilliant explanation. :))

Partially correct. The most obvious errors being that the economy hasn't bombed nor will it. It's simply fallen a little for a while. If someone actually kicked Brexit off it'll be brilliant not awful.
