Sorry. Brain works in a funny way - didn’t mean us to go down a Feynman rabbit hole. But I do think three things (that are relevant to Brexit):
1. We should listen more - first seek to understand before you seek to be understood.
2. “Only connect” (EM Forster - from Howard’s End) - to get a decent understanding of why complex stuff like Brexit happens, we can always look at parallels from other spheres of life, like physics.
3. The best word in the English language is ‘why’ - why did we want a referendum, why did people vote to leave/remain, why did the EU and TMay sign the Withdrawal Agreement, why did MPs vote against it, why is BJohnson going to win a thumping majority in the general election etc.
