Farewell to Brexit: some valedictory reminders
In a new Ephems blog post at http://www.barder.com/4829, “Farewell to Brexit: some valedictory reminders”, I reluctantly acknowledge that a majority in the house of commons seems determined to support the prime minister’s reckless determination to press on with firing the Article 50 starting pistol to begin the Brexit negotiations, despite a clear majority in parliament regarding such a process as a certain national disaster. In the light of this mass betrayal of parliamentary duty, further public argument is probably futile.
I accordingly leave the debate with just five valedictory points that the more fanatical Brexiteers conveniently overlook, and which most of them understandably prefer not to address. I spell these out with uncharacteristic brevity at http://www.barder.com/4829 and conclude by wishing all our readers, including the Brexiteers, a very happy Christmas (or Festive Season, if preferred) and a new year that may yet be less awful than the current omens suggest.

Happy Christmas from the splendid city of York in north Yorkshire, where the beautiful Christmas market rivals any in Europe, mulled wine and all, and which boasts the only five-star hotel in Yorkshire —
