For a glimpse of why we were outclassed & out-negotiated by a transparent EU27, Storyville’s Brexit: Behind Closed Doors is a bird’s eye look into how Britain had its “head in the f***ing clouds”. The mortifying incompetence & arrogance of #GlobalBritain. bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00…
Mark Rutte, Dutch PM, privately talks about a meeting he had with PM May. British press reported he would plead for more flexibility which wasn’t true.

“The British press..should not always listen to the spin coming out of Downing St.”

Think how much time we’d have saved.
It feels almost creepy to watch May’s early Brexit speeches. It was all so transparent, so much was predictable - & predicted.

So much of our media (but not all) obsessed/es over the personalities of Brexit, not the predictable & painful complexities of Brexit.

“What the f*** is wrong with her...Pathetic. Pathetic.”

The Brussels reaction to May’s non-communication w the DUP shows quite how deeply the British reputation has been damaged by the lines & allegiances May set up, by linking arms with the DUP & the hard right of her party.
“Much more a statement of intent than a legally enforceable thing”.

David Davis MP, former Brexit Secretary on behalf of the govt of the United Clowndom.

There’s been so much nonsense, you forget how they ever got away with each one of these.
There’s something surreal watching @guyverhofstadt racing old cars around obstacles whilst watching Britain #CarCrash the negotiations it chose to enter.

“He’s not always into nuances, Dominic Raab”.

Michel Barnier speaking about Raab being evidently moments away from blowing up the negotiations entirely, until he was shown the implications of what he was saying.

And these guys still put themselves forward to lead the Tories.
“Parliament is not a casino”.

@guyverhofstadt on the mad game surrounding the voting on May’s deal.

I don’t think May got that memo.
And with March 29th 2019 passed by with a weariness that has not yet lifted...

Britain stands under the cold shower of a collective #BobbyEwing moment.
