    "Blocking Brexit could lead to a surge in far-right extremism in the UK, the transport secretary has said. Chris Grayling told the Daily Mail that failing to leave the EU would cause the 17 million people who voted for Brexit to feel "cheated"."

    What will really lead to it is the suspicion of betrayal because of May's obsessive determination to remain in it, and that determination is there for all to see right now. If Brexit doesn't result in Brexit proper, the Tories will be out of office for a decade or two, and there will be serious unrest on the streets - even civil war. What an absolute shambles caused by the worst prime minister in British history.

    As I chat to certain people, I find it concerning what some are thinking. They won't go into specifics but if Brexit is cancelled, not retaliating against the government is not an option. There are some nutters out there and a cancelled Brexit with fuel them.

    Indeed so, it's what they call toxic. If there's some kind of fudge like the Norway thing (customs union, is it called?) there will be so much civil unrest (I dare not say civil war?) it'll make the US Red-Blue split seem like a teddy-bears' picnic. And there was no need for any of it - she's made a whole mountain range out of a hill of beans.
