Less than a week on from the EU Referendum result but it certainly feels like a long time for UK politics. Change is everywhere.
True it was expected that the Conservative Party would soon need to elect a new leader – followed by a changed ministerial line-up. But much less expected was the internal revolt of their Labour opposite numbers and an opposition leader who kept refusing to go even when pushed – heavily. This resulting in Government problems – like the fall from grace of the Chancellor of the Exchequer – being pushed from the headlines by a Labour Party in melt-down.
Aside from the official Westminster political manoeuvers the week has been full of crazy schemes and rash statements; autonomy for London, unification for Ireland, Scotland to block the EU exit letter, English out as an official EU language, no voting rights for Grandads, etc, etc.
However the mood amongst our former EU political partners was no more tranquil – especially after MEP Nigel Farage turned up in Brussels to say I told you so.
Some EU members wanted an immediate UK divorce while others tried to goad the UK into action by saying that we lacked the guts to actually leave. However most seemed to want to make the British pay for their stupid desertion vote and for us to regret ever challenging the right of the Brussels elite to lead the European continent towards its promised Nirvana.
Now it looks like we are going to need a really-special special agent to make good our escape from Brussels in one piece. Things may get even worse before they get any better … if that is even possible after England’s Euro 2016 football shambles on Monday.
