Iain Macwhirter: Brexit’s petulant children have taken the country to the cliff’s edge

As every parent knows, family life is all about conflict resolution. Parental authority is a thing of the past, and children know it, so there is no point in demanding obedience. The only way is to work through a quasi-judicial process. When child A wants to watch CBBC while child B wants the Cartoon Network you have to reason with them, and try to establish common rules. Each gets an hour, or the right to use the iPad if they can’t agree which hours to watch. Sometimes it doesn’t work because children are essentially egotists: they don’t understand why they shouldn’t get their way all the time.
