Tumbling into the Brexit abyssI have a British friend who never travels without his Irish passport, at least not since June 2016, when the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Ever since Brexit, the Irish passport has become something of an insurance policy against irrationality, and represents, for my friend at least, the possibility of retaining his European identity.The Irish border is not the only challenge that Brexit talks face.A "soft" Brexit will not necessarily ease the economic pain of divorce, but will undoubtedly be politically frustrating for both supporters and opponents.In Britain, a small majority voted in favor of Brexit, plunging the country into a state of confusion, which is bound to continue, regardless of what happens in negotiations with the EU. Earlier this month, a study published by YouGov found that British citizens remain as divided on Brexit as they were when they voted last year. For now, Britain seems to have accepted that the EU's demands are not irrational or unacceptable.Then again, as my friend with the Irish passport likes to say, you never know what may happen.
