The referendum created two new political identities, and ambitious political entrepreneurs now compete for their support, depriving compromises like @NickBoles’s Norway+ of oxygen
“Political rewards now go to men and women who promote polarization, not compromise, and because the country is divided into two almost equal halves, neither side can win decisively.”
And finally

“A different American government would make the resolution of conflict in one of its most important allies a major foreign-policy priority...the Trump administration has neither the attention nor inclination nor ability to get involved.”
