Photos of a U.K. in a Shadow of Brexit

So as they walk to a polls once again, this time in winter, a British are exhausted. They have what many cruise an unappetizing choice between Boris Johnson, an upper-class Conservative with a prolonged repute for mendacity, and Jeremy Corbyn, an aging revolutionary who is scarcely as unpopular as Prince Andrew, whose childish nickname of “Randy Andy” no longer seems so amusing.

Britain feels anxious, normal loyalties cracking, on a fork of a transition to a unknown. Queen Elizabeth II soldiers on during 95 and her heir, Charles, a Prince of Wales, is just commencement to grow into a pursuit for that he was innate during an age, 71, when many people have retired.

So a crafty aphorism of Mr. Johnson and his Brexit adviser, Dominic Cummings, fits a mood: “Get Brexit done.” Put an finish to stand-off and quarrel so many years after a referendum. Put lipstick on a pig that was his prototype Theresa May’s understanding with Brussels.

Of course, that will start another turn of vapid negotiations on trade, though “Brexit” will be done, figuratively, anyway.

What happens then? Just now, few seem to care.

Andrew Testa, who took these photographs on a prolonged debate by Britain, summarizes a mood he found as precisely as his eye prisoner a country. “It’s all about a referendum,” he said. “People say, ‘We voted, so it has to happen, no matter a consequences.’”
