I wonder will anyone even remember their names in five years time. Big news today as they resigned posts in the Tory Party in rejection of the Brexit deal agreed with the European Union by Theresa May and her dwindling cabinet.
The British Press continue to push hard to see the most hard landing of Brexit realised. How do we know this? The following Tweet puts it perfectly:
As the Tory Party implodes you get the sense that everyone just wants the pain to end. You can almost imagine Theresa May praying that the dissenters reach their target of 48 letters to the 1922 committee to trigger a no confidence motion.
As one columnist put it today it is far easier to criticise the Cabinet for failure to deliver the promised herd of Unicorns, than to engage in the tricky task of Unicorn breeding.
The cabinet may accept the deal only to be rejected by the party, the parliament or even the people, who might just vote the Labour Party back in. Not that Jeremy Corbyn deserves a crack at the whip.
I have no further predictions. The plot of the Brexit story reads a lot like G.K. Chesterton’s “The Napoleon of Notting Hill” where the people defy all political predictions on national direction by stagnating.
