A Brexit Future

There are archetypes in the Old Testament about exile and restoration, the tearing down of the corrupt temple and its rebuilding in a more Godly way, about towers of human hubris being torn down by God and of purging by flood or fire. It is my belief that British society and all its institutions (including the Church of England) are so unfair and unjust that the only route to redemption is for all to be raised to the ground and for us to start again. This will not happen under a Tory government or either of the two possible Labour governments. But pragmatism is an anathema to the optimistic spirit.
