British PM promised in early Sept that he would be “dead in a ditch” before he would agree to extend his country’s membership of the European Union beyond Oct 31st.…
That means, surely, that as of 11pm Brussels time on Thursday, Johnson is the first self-acknowledged member of the undead to occupy 10 Downing Street.…

Queen Elizabeth
only has 2 birthdays;
post-Brexit Britain
has nine – so far.

The date w destiny

2B whole box of dates.

W Brexit,
a deadline is
a line that is drawn forever

and then dies away.

not big fan of
Brexit was hurtling
ever faster fwd,
towards a known +
supposedly unbreakable appt w fate.

Not just known
but chosen.👈

It was entirely matter 4 British
2 start timer,
2 say 2 their imagined destiny,
as in an old-fashioned romantic movie:
let’s make date 2 meet under clock
"Even if Brexit were a good idea, it was obviously an immense task. Each of the 730 available days mattered, + 1 might have expected British hearts 2 beat faster as each 1 of them was marked off on the calendar."

"But there was instead a strange meandering, every movement towards a feasible agreement followed by a looping back into previously discarded impossibilities."

More profoundly,

These folks not subtle
nor smart.

TY @fotoole…
Brexit has a way of defying linear time.

There is no last ditch,

of looping paths
that will meander
across the landscape
unless + until
the whole thing is ditched.

Nice Op Ed
Very well spoken.
