Can the chaos that is descending on the United Kingdom be good for Europe, or even for Britain?Brexit is not just a political upheaval; it is a revolution. Historically, radical political realignments have been rather rare in British politics. In the 2000s, British Prime Minister Theresa May played a crucial role in cleaning up the Conservative Party's image as the "nasty party". But her Brexit strategy, in which she has avoided taking any clear positions, has transformed the party into something even worse: a dishonest, divided, weak political cabal whose decisions could prove lethal.Brexit transcends the old two-party divide in British politics. In France, President Emmanuel Macron's new political party, La Republique en Marche, has effectively supplanted the old center-right Gaullist party, Les Republicains, as well the center-left Socialists.In fact, realignments may have a better chance of succeeding elsewhere in Europe than in the U.K. After all, Britain's malaise runs much deeper than party politics.Looking ahead, there are two possible scenarios for British politics.
