I wouldn't go that far, Brexit is a three year debacle that exposed a great many things, it's a stretch to say the state of UK is more robust than US based on this one instance where the British state functioned in three long years. The incident shows the executive branch of UK is less powerful than the executive branch of USA.

In truth we knew this before. The two systems form the duality of democracy: Westminster parliamentary system (as practiced in Germany and UK, among others) and Presidential system (as practiced in USA and Turkey, among others).
