JOHN LLOYD: Actually, a little Brexit chaos is a good thing
'The commentariat, and much of political opinion, have got what they have long lamented was absent – a democratic debate about an issue of cardinal importance'
Compromise is the loveliest word in democratic politics and beyond – in lasting relationships, labor disputes, international relations. British Prime Minister Theresa May has never more needed the deployment of this lovely and necessary word than now. Earlier this month, she managed to convince her cabinet – composed of both pro- and anti-Brexit ministers – to accept a compromise between a complete break with the European Union on the one side, and a more gentle exit on the other.
