It’s quiet out there. Probably too quiet.

Britain is due to leave the European Union in six months, but you wouldn’t know it from the country’s news headlines or the debates in Parliament. The issue that consumed the country for almost three years has been reduced to a murmur.

The EU has agreed to delay the UK’s exit – long scheduled to take place last month – until October 31 to give Britain’s deadlocked politicians more time to approve a divorce deal. European Council President Donald Tusk warned the UK not to waste the extra time.

But there has been little progress toward breaking the political impasse that has left Britain in limbo.
