Pardon the old and tired cliché; time will tell. In the meantime the EU will continue it's great work...
The thing about clichés is that they are so often true. Time will tell, of course. Most parties will claim - post ex facto - that their aims have been achieved. The Earth will continue to rotate.

It'll be worth it to rub Sinn Fein's nose in it. Gerry Adams' United Ireland is the return of the B Specials. Brexit could also give the Brits a chance to abolish all the free handouts like Stormont. Take care of the DUP anmd stick it to Sinn Fein now tghat the latter lap dogs have served their purpose.
Britain survived before the EU. It will get through

Hopefully it will. In the meantime, the population of this rotating planet will continue to delude itself in thinking that the EU, UN, USA and all the rest are great ways to run the place. I would be more concerned with the Korean fireworks displays than that Brexit nonsense. It hasn't yet happened fully and the border has not yet materialised. Same goes for the Great Wall of Mexico.

I would be more concerned with the homeless saga, the Nama saga, the youth unemployment saga than the up to now, non existant border and the impending Brexit Armageddon!

Cliches, I often think, are a pleasant excuse not to bother with critical thinking and upon examination they are often found to be flawed to varying degrees.

Oh, I examine each and every one when presented. They are often true to the extent of becoming truisms.

The point is that they cannot be automatically discarded.

What about when cliches contradict each other? E.g. "many hands make light work" and "too many cooks"?

I'd class those as platitudes rather than clichés. The sort of thing which appeared on those tear off calendars which were once popular.
