Three MPs - ERG, Labour and former Tory - who have declared support for PM’s stitch-up.

I want you to REALLY LISTEN to what they say on a 2nd Ref. All acknowledge it would probably be a Remain win, but that’s too messy. They all know they push this through AGAINST the majority.
Can you imagine, can you fucking FATHOM it? Three elected MPs in a mature democracy, appearing on national TV, and saying OUT LOUD: “Well, yeah, we know this is a HORRIBLE idea, we suspect we’re shoving it through AGAINST the wishes of the country. But fuck it. We’re bored.”
I kept waking up in the middle of the night and thinking about this little exchange. Genuinely.

I know we’ve become jaded from so much BIG STUFF happening.

But it’s in these little, seemingly innocuous exchanges that the soul of the country is slowly suffocated.
It is this that we never see coming. Every fucking time we don’t see it coming. Every fifty years it comes as a total shock: How very SENSIBLE fascism can appear.
