What is Britain’s optimum way forward after the coronation of King Charles III; by way of using Option Solving (OS)?

Post leaving Europe’s Economic Union (EEU), Britain seems to have been adrift as it finds its political and economic footing in the world once more. It clearly hadn’t prepared for its departure from the EEU, both due to inadequate leadership and likely reluctance to influence the vote one way or the other. It also wasn’t lucky enough to have strong leadership in place to lead the country down a more optimal path once a decision was made. It has had either weak or mercurial leadership ever since with no effective leaders in sight. In spite of all that, it needs appropriate, innate leadership forces to agree on renewal. This creates an ideal opportunity for Britain’s new monarch to quietly foster a fresh consensus around the nation’s future.

As a somewhat objective outsider, this editor would pose the following option solving question: “What is Britain’s optimum way forward after coronation of King Charles III; considering it needs 1) to find new economic alliances, 2) more effective leadership to re-energize its population, 3) to re-ignite citizens’ ‘wartime’ ingenuity, and 4) to build on fresh economic ideas and markets?” Again, it’s appropriate to focus on just these four considerations to reduce complexity in its eventual decision, when that ultimate moment arrives – despite there being many other possible consider-ations out there.

Your editor then decided to propose fitting yin and yang “bookends,”as these will help keep people’s minds focused against other immediate mental distractions. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

Such “bookends” could be: “Let things slide to reach the bottomCreate enormous turmoil, loss of national pride;and “Allow economy take-over by stronger economic partner” British prideand independence suffer. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which shows why they are not a good idea for consideration. Even so, these bookends will now hopefully nudge loyalists’ intuitive thinking into high gear to come-up with a range of realistic options – see ourLatest Worked Example.

From there, they would encourage the King and his Privy Council to quietly nudge Britain’s political leaders to build a national referendum around proposed realistic options; to include the five or six most realistic options – A thru F – which were then ready for some national debate during OS’s emotional distancing andbeforecoming to any final decision. They can then review these declared options during a national review period before arriving at an optimal, referendum conclusion. You can replace these proposed options with any new ones of your own.

While these six options looked especially interesting, your editor was particularly intrigued by – Option A: Form government of national unity for economic renewal. Meanwhile parliament subsequently decided to allow the British population to reflect on these proposed options and seek input from world opinions before their referendum poll and then proceed accordingly. British leaders were strongly advised to stick with their population’s new overall, referendum choice.
