So far, Brexit has only meant bullshit. Time to admit that it ‘has got us into such a poisonous muddle that we need to rip it up and start again: to revoke Article 50, or refer back to the people or both.’ Parris issues a warning to May’s successor.

The whole point of Brexit was not leaving the European Union - that was just the cover story. It was always about dismantling decades of hard-won social justice. This cannot be emphasised enough. We are in a fight to defend everything we value about our society.

The defining characteristic of Theresa May’s premiership, her Cabinet and her government has been the fact that they are all utterly devoid of empathy, humanity or caring for those in need. An administration woven together with the callous threads of greed and self-aggrandisement

Well isn’t this nice? All of us trapped in the Tory party hellscape with Brexit and UK politics locked in a vicious cycle of idiocy and exceptionalism.... and no end in sight.

May is gone. She had to go. But she could be replaced by Churchill and the outcome still wouldn’t satisfy anyone. Until our leaders are brave enough to admit Brexit can’t be finished, Brexit will finish them. My latest for

I think we could publish this paragraph alone as a pamphlet and it’d be a bestseller!

That Boris Johnson as PM is a serious proposition is proof that the Tories have taken leave of their senses. Nothing - apart from Brexit obvs - has done more to trash the UK’s global reputation in last three years than his risible tenure as Foreign Secretary

Too right. I met Alan Vega in 1980, went to do an interview. He said fuck this shit, cracked an amyl under my nose, and played 96 Tears VERY LOUD. No interview but had a great time

This would be a constitutional outrage. There is no mandate for No Deal. It was not on the ballot paper in 2016 and a majority of both Parliament and the public reject it now. To pursue hard Brexit without consent would show contempt for our democracy and disdain for us all.

Can’t help feeling that all these eulogies to May’s premiership are somewhat glossing over how morally unpleasant, intellectually lacking, and consistently incompetent she was. But apart from that, eh?

If anyone wants to be Prime Minister for the long term, then they have to confront the country with the fact that Brexit cannot be done. And that is the price of holding that office.

A damningly accurate assessment. Key line: "May’s legacy is a broken party in a broken Parliament in a badly broken country".
