Are these the death throes of brexit?

Is Brexit in it's death-throes, or am I being overly optimistic? Everywhere I look these days, I see signs that the country is starting to step back from the brink: report after report is saying what a negative effect brexit is having; and I get the strong impression that, behind the scenes, the government is desperately trying to look for a way out of it. But could that just be wishful thinking on my part? Am I simply reading what I want to read in papers like the Guardian, and ignoring papers which say everything is going swimmingly, dismissing them as being biassed?

I'm not sure. For one, I'm sensing an increasing tone of desperation in Brexiteers. They seem to be starting to play the blame game, casting the leaders of the EU as the bad guys for not giving us what we want. They also try to blame other factors. We can read into this an admittance they would never speak openly, that things aren't going their way. I saw a clip of Farage on his radio show earlier, trying to make it sound like it was all europes fault, maintaining the utter delusion that they need us more than we need them. As it becomes ever more clear that they don't, and that we were fools ever to listen to scumbags like farage, the gibberish they spew will become more and more desperate. They've already started the blame game, or threatening some kind of civil disturbance if brexit isn't carried out - what stronger sign could there be that brexit is indeed proving to be a catastrophe, that the signs I'm seeing are accurate, and that it would be best to put an end to the project before it goes any further.
