Day 591

In the Brexit chess game from hell, someone finally moved a piece, today in London’s City Hall: Step One of the perfect u-turn; check your mirrors: For remaining in the EU “to have credibility with the British public, there would have to be a Labour manifesto offer, because the public would say, not unreasonably, ‘Hold on a sec, we voted to leave and you’re now sticking two fingers up at us’,” Sadiq Khan said. Step Two; check where you’re going to end up: ““You’d have to spell out, in black and white, what we’d do if we won the general election.” Hopefully what we’d do is begin the conversation, What kind of federalism should the UK have?, Mr. Khan; that topic might even help with Step One. But no rush, eh.
