The outists are putting on a show

I try to avoid conspiracy theories as a rule, but I can't help starting to think that, regarding Brexit, the tories are just going through the motions. That is, gove and Johnson et al know full well how stupid the entire farce is but are just carrying on with it to save face. As well informed men how could they not realise how damaging Brexit will be? But to go back on it would mean ignoring the 2016 referendum, causing their party to lose all credibility. A Tory PM announced that vote so to ignore it's result would obliterate any integrity the party ever had. Thus, rather than becoming a laughingstock, the tories have no choice but to persevere with something they know full well is going to ruin the country. In that sense, though, they are putting party before country; but how else can you explain this foolishness? Surely they realise how pitiful this entire episode is making the UK look; surely they have seen the mounting forecasts. The only reason why any sensible political party would carry on with this farce was if they felt they had no choice. The outists know how stupid Brexit is, but are carrying on with it simply to save face, putting on an elaborate show so they don't have to admit that what happened in 2016 was essentially meaningless. I suspect that, meanwhile behind the scenes, they are desperately looking for a way out of this madness. Have you ever seen anything more sickeningly self-serving, not to say downright dishonest?
