May’s extreme version of Brexit has “forced the Scots into terrible choices…”

This morning’s FT editorial says it all (especially when read beside the Mail’s hysterical “Hands Off Our Brexit”)…

The irony here is that the Tory government has refused to outline exactly what sort of Brexit it wants. A bit like the blind men and the elephant everyone thinks they can define the whole thing by the bits and pieces the government chooses to release to the public. Even the FT. 

It’s also worth reading Janan Ganesh (in the IT)…


Some of us are keeping dry powder for when the real thing kicks off. Two years is a very long time in politics.
