This is the first time in 500 years that Britain has not managed to divide the continent

The metaphor works better if it’s too far away rather than falling the wrong way.

Too far away signifies Britain’s specialness within EU and how they aren’t exactly the same as the rest of Europe, which means not everyone is just gonna lean whichever way they blow.

Falling the wrong way implies that Brexit could have gone well, if it had only been done differently. But they did it the wrong way and that’s why it failed.
