Partisan, tribal, unwilling to face up to reality, living in the past, putting party before country, passing blame at every stage, reverting to personal attacks, driven by emotion not reason and scoring cheap political points while Rome burns around them.

And that's just remainers arguing about cross-party cooperation to stop No Deal Brexit.

I'll be honest with you, much of the population of EU27 thinks the UK brought all of this on themselves and deserve the consequences.

We who live in EU27 spend lots of time explaining that the government might deserve it, but the population doesn't.

If No Deal happens because opposition parties, with many members cheering them on and defending recalcitrant, self-defeating approaches, couldn't cooperate with each other, that defence becomes just a bit less true.

Still, it'll be worth it to cash in all those political points after the catastrophe though, eh?

Seriously, I'm extremely angry with many politicians, not least Corbyn. The reality is though that any way out of this needs his support and cooperation.

If expressing dislike or frustration with him is more important than finding a way to stop this, please pause and reflect.

Before it's too late for those whose health, wellbeing, jobs and families rely on this cooperation happening.
