    Not so much direct effects,I think but perhaps it informs peoples views on globalization.
    What is the opinion on globalization in the UK under Brexit?
    I can't really say but the UK should ,in part have a special take on it in one aspect; like the US( actually much more so) it effectively was (in very large part) the globalization agent in its history.

    Where other regions might see globalization as an opportunity it may be that historically dominant economic/military/political powers have to adapt to a certain amount of downsides (certainly in their self image)

    Of course there is no real choice in the matter but politicians can get elected pretending ,or even convincing themselves otherwise.
    The US and the UK have done business internationally for a long time. They have also fought in many foreign wars, some together, and expanded their influence internationally.

    Pressure from his back benchers in the House of Commons.

    non-achieving blair
    Man was a liar, hence Tony Bliar

    may the scape-goat
    Another liar. She never wanted Brexit to happen.

    bat-crazy thatcher
    She had been abducted by aliens in her home town of Grantham in the 1960's.
    That's why she said you can't tell the people.

    U.S. situation not quite as bad as U.K. Hopefully 2020 election will get rid of Trump and get the U.S. back to being leader of the free world. If Brexit finally goes through, it will be much harder to reverse.

    Parliament just voted against no deal Brexit. My guess it will be delayed again after Oct.

    This is incorrect. Parliament has voted for a measure that makes it impossible for Parliament to be suspended ("prorogued"), in the run-up to the next critical date (Hallowe'en).

    What that does is make it impossible for Bozo to prevent a vote of no confidence in his government from taking place, which would kick him out and force a general election.

    So all this has done is enable Parliament to maintain the threat that if he tries to crash the UK out of the EU, he may be out of office and into en election he is likely to lose.

    A lot more work needs to be done to ensure no-deal exit is prevented. This is just the start.

    So it's the fat controller as new PM.
    Look out. He'll reach for a scatter gun.
