It is undoubtedly a triumph for Boris Johnson: he will go down in history as the Prime Minister who led the United Kingdom out of the European Union. “Get Brexit done” was his promise. He redeemed it. The treaty on future relations with the EU ends a political drama that began on June 23, 2016 with the Brexit referendum. A drama full of intrigue, lies and power games. A drama that ends after four and a half years with the certainty that a bad thing cannot become a good one. Brexit has deeply divided the UK. And Europe’s place in the world weakened.
