Shitting hell! We are led by fools.

Whatever happens now, the UK’s reputation for serious diplomacy, carefully built up over decades and more, has been destroyed. Chucked into burning brazier of incomprehension and incompetence.

Our “Rolls-Royce” government has been shown to actually be a diplomatic and political Morris Marina in shite-brown, with ripped vinyl seats, a slow puncture, and wipers that don’t work in the rain.

How anybody can still think that taking back control (even if Brexit was that, which it isn’t) could be a good thing when it means the future of the UK is placed in the hands of such intellectual and moral failures is utterly beyond me.

UKGov is like a friend going off the rails, spiralling, unable to help itself from making the worst decisions possible. It’s friends, our friends, try to intervene, but receive nothing but abuse in return.

You couldn’t get away with running a local newsagents like this, let alone a sodding country.

“One ambassador said: “The reality is there is no longer any interlocutor for Europe. It is not at present the prime minister. We have to wait until one emerges.””
