The EU isn't punishing the UK for Brexit. We are punishing ourselves. Losing all the benefits of EU membership IS punishment. Just like no longer being able to use the fitness equipment or the weights is punishment for quitting the local gym. 2/19

Crazy prediction (disclaimer: I’m usually wrong): if Theresa May reshuffles govt in coming weeks, she’ll offer Boris the Home Office. 1/20
The main rationale for a reshuffle is to “refresh” this moribund govt (won’t work) but also to reassert authority. 2/
Boris as FS= so embarrassing & so loathed by foreign govts (that he is supposed to win over to our side) that it’d be fab to move him. 3/
