A bunch of guys (politicians looking for an edge) got together and decided to convince the British populous that all their problems could be blamed on someone else… the “them.” And, if they simply pushed “them” out of their lives, everything would be great.
But, along the way, they forgot to mention all the things the “them” were doing for the populous.
And, another but, they didn’t actually have a plan to replace the “them” once they were kicked out.
The populous, moved forward by stump speeches, catchy slogans, and empty promises of a universally better life, agreed. They told the “them” to go screw off.
What did the bunch of guys do?
They sh!t their collective pants. “We won? The populous bought this crap? What do we do now?”
What they did was quit. Figuratively and literally, they, to a last, just quit.
Theresa May was left holding the bucket of emptiness trying to fill it with stuff that just doesn’t exist.
There are no simple answers to happiness or a better life. Most certainly the answer is not “them”.
