My first is in Britain, which once was called Great,
My second's in Boris, who's for sealing its fate.
My third is in Europe, where patience wears thin,
My fourth is in taxes, but not European!
My fifth is in Ireland, but not in the South
My sixth is in parliament, kept out of their house.
My whole's a fiasco, gone on now for years,
And the sorry conclusion will surely bring tears.

The answer is one word.

The word is

Brexit

The first, second etc.

refer to the nth letter in the word. So the first is B (found in "Britain", etc.) And the rest of the poem of course refers to various aspects of Brexit literally.
