I see no ships!
Thank heavens we do not have a Brexit crisis.
Only a day or so ago Boris Johnson was proclaiming we had barely 100 days to sort Brexit out. Prompting a comparison with Napoleon’s 100 days from Elba. Which also ended, by coincidence near to Brussels.
On assuming power the new Prime Minister got straight to work appointing a new cabinet.
It all had a real sense of urgency to it. Everything had been couched in terms of a national emergency. This was a time for action.
Then this evening the following announcement appeared from the House of Commons:
“Thursday Jul 25, 2019 5:30pm: House of Commons rises for summer recess 2019. Commons Chamber will next sit on Tuesday 3 September 2019”
And there we were thinking there was urgent business to attend to.
