[Rant on]You’re not kidding. We’re by turns exasperated at the inability of our politicians to get it together; terrified of not being able to get medicines after the end of the month, infuriated by the public money this vanity exercise is costing, saddened at losing precious connections with our neighbours across the Channel and annoyed by having to fill our homes with bog roll and olive oil just in case just-in-time poops the bed over the summer.
And that’s without the worry that foodstuffs we have learned to rely on over the last thirty years, fruit and vegetables from Spain and the Netherlands particularly, are about to disappear or at least become much more expensive.
The whole thing is just garbage, and even if it is cancelled tomorrow, the effects will be felt for a generation. The United Kingdom is an international laughing stock, and the people responsible for the worst of it will walk away scot-free. We should be charging them with treason for the hurt they have done to this country.[Rant off]
