The coup that is Brexit

I know I've been a bit heavy on the shortish, link-oriented entries recently, but I really want to flag this up. Once again it's on Brexit: A C Grayling is a very astute man indeed; he points out how much the current situation is starting to look like a coup. First they weight the referendum, disenfranchising people more likely to vote Remain; they then deny the slender outcome was ever going to be only advisory; then they say that the triggering of article Fifty is irreversible. It is as if the tories - and Labour, for that matter - are now hell bent on the hardest of Brexits. Like the vainglorious generals who, a century ago, sent cavalry to charge against German machine gun, these tory fools would have this country ripped to shreds in the basis of patriotic fervour. As Grayling points out, things will soon be so bad that we will be begging to rejoin. He gives it ten or twelve years, but I hope we come to our senses long before then. It is high time that we started to listen to experts like Grayling, and ignoring fools who, dressed up in their shiny, nineteenth-century uniforms, tell us to just keep riding and not to look back.
