Just one More Whinge about Brexit

Then I’ll shut up. (OK I lied. Maybe I’ll just mention it occasionally over the next 47 years. Lies are the New Truth after all.)

Some excellent quotes.

“It is time for the PM to channel the spirit of Moses in Exodus, and say to Pharaoh in Brussels – LET MY PEOPLE GO”

Boris Johnson, comparing EU membership to another mythical enslavement.

“The problem with a revolt against imaginary oppression is that you get imaginary freedom.”

“Brexit’s ultimate tragedy is that it has broken the very thing it imagines itself to have restored: national identity, national cohesion. There is none at all. There are just two huge tribes set against each other, and the mutual loathing is as fierce as ever.”

“If Britain doesn’t pull out of this death spiral, then it will soundly deserve its fate. The country is revelling in its absolute worst tendencies, the like of which I once thought belonged to a minority of boors. I was sadly mistaken, I’m afraid. It now has one as Prime Minister.”

“Honestly, I can’t see why you’re doing it. I don’t understand. I don’t envy you – and not just the passport hassle. You’re on your own now, and the world feels like quite a hostile place. Good luck.”
