It is surprising, given the obvious costs/impacts of Brexit on the UK, that UK politicians keep shooting themselves in the feet by defying the reality of the situation they have created.
Calling for pragmatism after you’ve ripped apart a ‘status-quo’ which had existed for 40 years is the absolute height of hypocrisy.
The time for pragmatism was when the Tories were infighting over their stance on Europe. It would have been pragmatic to resolve their issue internally then.
It’s way too late for pragmatism now.. It’s like you’ve been shot by ‘friendly fire’, and after the fact you’re going to argue about the most pragmatic way of dealing with a gaping, air-sucking, chest wound..
Buggered if I know 😛
