Amid ongoing political chaos and uncertainty, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair says Brexit exhaustion is a unifying issue.

  • "The only thing that unites the British people at the moment is a desire to have the thing over with," Blair told CNN Sunday. "So if there was another referendum and people voted to leave, well, you’d just have to accept that result and make the best of it. I’m not sure they would."

Scotland's Court of Session, its highest civil court, ruled Wednesday that the ongoing suspension — or "prorogation" — of the U.K. Parliament by Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government is unlawful, per the BBC.

What's next: The court's ruling did not include an order to cancel the prorogation, so Parliament will remain out of session. The case now heads to the U.K.'s Supreme Court next week.
