Spring is on its way

Here is Nigel Farage in celebratory mood and joyous Brexiteers in Parliament Square last night. 

Our (but not my) PM was nowhere to be seen. He has already done his flag stunt. 


We have to settle for his video message which opens with these words, "For many people this is an astonishing moment of hope”. 

There is only one true word in that sentence - ‘astonishing’. I am astonished that this country has moved so fast from hope to despair. When I woke up this morning I thought of this picture from Mel Brooks’ ‘Springtime for Hitler’. 

Unfortunately we are going to have to get down and dirty before we can mock and laugh. We are going to have to learn from the French and that will be no joke.
