A supreme example of Brexit nonsense again this week

The Supreme Court London

I never thought I would need to write this. However, I have to say that I now realise that the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom is biased. In deciding that Bonkers Boris had prorogued parliament illegally, Lady Hale and her judicial chums exhibited complete and undeniable bias.

Yes, I know it’s a Bank Holiday and you should be having a nice relaxing day in the sunshine forgetting all about Brexit. But it has been a rather momentous week, so it is time for an update. The first thing to say is that Mrs May completely fooled me. This time last week I was saying she was going to be vague about her timetable for resignation. Then she only goes and does something that I was unable to predict. She did, as I said, bring back her deal. But I had no idea that she would tinker with it to such an extent that it would alienate the opposition and most of her loyal supporters at the same time. It takes a special skill to be able to …
