@gavinsblog @GeorgePeretzQCW @SebDanceell, Gavin, I managed a Double First in Modern History from Oxford. One of the things I was taught is that historians necessarily have different takes on the same events. Please try to accept that yours is not the only interpretation.

This is what the Speaker said a few weeks ago when he allowed a Remainer amendment. He was cheered by the same people cheering him now. Marvel at the EU’s #HideousStrength . It doesn’t just subvert national institutions. It undoes its supporters’ capacity for fairness or logic.

As well as being undemocratic in itself, the EU hollows out the *internal* democracy of its member nations. The politicisation of the Speaker’s chair after 300 years is just the latest example of what I call the EU’s Hideous Strength. https://t.co/8Iuk6mupPO

One thing that both sides now agree on is that it was a mistake to trigger Article 50 without a clear plan for what would follow. So why are both sides now arguing that we should trigger the Withdrawal Agreement with no clear plan for what would follow?

Eighty-six per cent of MPs were elected in 2017 on manifestos promising to honour the referendum result. Now Labour - helped by a handful of Tory Euro-zealots - have gone back on those promises. This goes beyond Brexit: they are delegitimising our system of government.

Twitter may regret de-verifying people of whom it disapproves. Until now, a blue tick simply meant authentication, but henceforth it implies endorsement. Suddenly, Twitter is in the ideology business.

So, according to Twitter.
Making an off-colour joke years ago disqualifies you from serving on a quango.
Supporting Hezbollah, the Soviet Union and the IRA qualifies you to be prime minister.

By the end of next month, we will have had around two thirds of the entire time it took to fight the First World War to prepare for Brexit. If we're really not ready, what does that say about the state of the government machine?

UK: "Give us a concession on the backstop."
EU: "Or what?"
UK: "Or we'll... we'll postpone Brexit!"
Our approach to these negotiations has been abysmal from the start.
