After an ill-advised referendum last Thursday, British citizens woke up horrified to learn they had voted to exit from the European Union. United Kingdom politicians are hemming, hawing, stalling for time, and even calling for a do-over vote. EU members aren’t having it. Their message to the UK: Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.

It’s going to be a messy divorce, really ugly. Expect a custody battle over Scotland, Gibraltar, and Northern Ireland. And the UK can forget about being a Norwegian-style “friend with benefits.”

    I don’t see it as a custody battle. More like the wife (Scotland) and the children (Northern Ireland) leaving an abusive father (England) who never loved them anyway, and joining their relatives in their big mansion, while the drunk, jobless, toothless father is left in his crumbling, leaking house to shake his powerless fist through the window. His only consolation is his eldest child (Wales) standing by him, but I won’t go too deeply into the nature of their relationship because its getting weird.

    Granted. And dotty old Cornwall just seems bewildered by it all.
