Reflections on The State of Play.
Well I must say that although I have not seen much of the debate about Brexit I am impressed by Mrs. Teresa May. She has maintained a rational and forthright attitude. Many a good leader has been ditched long before the end of the road. But I hope she is able to lead this Brexit process to a satisfactory conclusion.
Just a word about the administrative culture of the EC. It's full of directives, reports, quangos. Reams of deathless quasi-academic prose. How often do we see tired officials on auto-pilot sleep-walk their way through mind-numbing scripts holding forth in imperfect English accents on arcane topics which mere mortals find impossible to understand? A case in point is the famous "500 page" document agreed after 2 years of negotiation between the parties to Brexit. If you wanted to do something then a 500 page document is the very device needed to slow things down and make the possible impossible. "The native hue of resolution is sicklied o'er with the pale caste of thought," to quote Hamlet.
