Abstract

All the available evidence suggests that Brexit will be chaotic and debilitating, but the answer is not necessarily to force a halt - unless it is the Hard Brexit devotees themselves who are forced to do it. In this blog, Conor Gearty (LSE) explains that a sudden reversal of Brexit would become the new casus belli. Equally, the government's current exit plan, which is likely to grow into something plausibly akin to EU servitude, would also exacerbate the symbolic conflict over Europe in UK politics. A collective catharsis can only be achieved by putting the chief believers of Brexit in charge, he concludes, even if the price is a catastrophically hard exit from the EU.
