I am increasingly inclined to think he is right: whatever the political rights and wrongs of Brexit we just can’t do it. From simply getting the right HMRC IT in place, to having the skills to negotiate the deals, let alone having the parliamentary resource to deliver the legislation, we just can’t deliver Brexit. We have set out on a course much harder than getting to the moon was when JFK promised that. We’re not even going to get to the launchpad at the current rate of progress, so poorly is everything being managed. But the countdown will continue nonetheless. That is May’s legacy.
Government can’t manage to leave a treaty organisation we’ve only been in for a generation. So, that’s, on the grounds of competence if no more, the end of the Curajus State, isn’t it?
