Worthwhile read and an interesting attempt to marry Hofstede with Inglehart, two divergent perspectives on culture. Useful overview reading for grad classes, tho some of the suggested new concepts (eg joy) are odd.

EU Council requests May to specify reasons for any requested extension of the Brexit deadline. Extending uncertainty without a clear plan would not be in the interest of the EU. Where is the sick note for not handing on the assignment by due date, please?

If nothing else good comes out of it, at least everyone is having to brush up on Westminster procedure, learn what prorogue means, and pay attention to arcane and dusty points of order. Expect Erskine May to trend on twitter soon. Lesson in Civics 101.

Hum. You might have thought that Cambridge was a UK publisher and would be on ball with this one, with Brexit and all. I'll chivvy them along.

Cultural Backlash currently ranks 30th in Amazon (US) best seller lists on political parties. What is Number 1? The Mueller report! What does Amazon know that we don't?

No problem, so you could continue to vote Leave. You get a choice. Like general elections every 4 years.

Or, that you and everyone else should have the opportunity to make an informed democratic choice, to update their preferences, now that more is known about alternative options.

Lenka: will do! Apologies - mea culpa. Copy editing was a nightmare. Here's a shout out to the terrific book on education and tolerance!! Great topic!

Agree that the prospect of a long extension and the risks of People's Vote or GE may frighten some Brexitiers into line. But this assumes that May has any political strategy left. She looks utterly exhausted and drained, on autopilot. Perhaps its all a clever plan?

EU should offer a long extension on condition that the UK holds a referendum or GE to break the Westminster stalemate and provide a legitimate final say. Sorry, Brenda!

Party trumps country. Partly two dogmatic, dim, and unimaginative leaders. But also reinforced by winner-take-all electoral incentives & Westminster party instincts instead of political cultures of coalitional compromise. Wouldn't have happened in Germany, Netherlands or Sweden.

"Britain suddenly looking like a banana republic." Unfair to banana republics?
