Rory, who has been nothing if not loyal to the PM, will join me later to explain why Mrs May's deal is preferable to remaining in the EU. Feel free to call him (and me) from about 12.30.

If 'no deal' happens it will be because of this utterly stupid belief that we deserve unique treatment 'because we're British'. The irony is that we will then be transferring that delusion from EU to WTO where every country will be looking at what they can gain from our weakness.

At the risk of ruining a much loved franchise in many respects Dan Hannan is a cosplaying Paddington bear without the marmalade sandwiches.

See also Carswell, Hannan and that whole Spitfire Brexit brigade. Hannan arrived here as a schoolboy refugee from Peru and is on record somewhere as saying that he was disappointed that the UK he arrived in didn't match up to how he imagined it.

Andrew Lilico is yet another ladybird Libertarian. Grew up in New Zealand - came here believing the country was all bobbies on bicycles, red phone boxes and thatched villages full of local types chewing straw. Was disappointed by what he found....

It’s remarkable how ridiculous this phrase looks when not viewed through the distorting lens of the Brexit-supporting wing of media. ‘Brexit means Brexit’. What a pile of an unadulterated claptrap.

I have never blocked anyone on Twitter before. I believe politicians should welcome an open debate. But what just tweeted was so beyond the pale that I cannot think of a better way to express my abhorrence. I hope others do the same.

Lest we forget, Toby Young, author of this tragic tale, has railed ceaselessly against those he sees as self-pitying snowflakes.

Imagine what we could have achieved collectively in the past two and a half years if we hadn't all been pouring all of our attention and energy into Brexit bullshit. Imagine what we could have done as a country if we weren't so consumed by gammonfucking flagshagging egotism.
