Interesting read. Some sanity at last.


What is illuminating is that it is 2 years old and yet seems like it was written yesterday as we go through yet another anti-Semitism smear campaign against the UK left.

£20 bn a year for a 'highly streamlined customs arrangement with the EU after Brexit '.

I'd guess were going to see some proper old fashioned anti-Semitism from the right after this, not the sort which leads to Jewish people being expelled from the Labour Party for criticizing Israel.

This rang so many bells it sounded like Westminster Cathedral on wedding day.

We live in an age when a single viral image of a politician looking stupid while eating a bacon sandwich is more likely to damage a career than authorizing a drone strike on a foreign school. The result is a complete subordination of substance to style, as voters come to demand that performative facets – strength, certitude, infallibility – take precedence over moral ones like honesty and compassion.

There's nothing like a bit of Cabinet unity is there :

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44761056

And this is nothing like......

So the Brexit guy resigns immediately after the Cabinet agree their Brexit Policy?

This sounds like it's all going swimmingly, doesn't it?

I was just doing the Danny Dyer emphasis. Wasn't necessarily personal. ;)

To lose one Minister may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness.......

I hear the sound of knives being sharpened… May will never succeed in selling Brexit to the British public (she can't even sell it to her own cabinet, as Corbyn pointed out) because she doesn’t believe in it. It’s like buying meat from a vegan butcher.
