With the Leave win in the European Union referendum and then the presidency of Donald Trump, we find ourselves in a reality which seems somewhat distorted. A dystopian reality, part Orwellian, part Dickensian with a sprinkling of Alice in Wonderland madness – for Theresa May as the Queen of Hearts and Boris Johnson as both Tweedledum and Tweedledee, fit right in. Over all of it, lurks the threat of ‘Apocalypse Now’ or is it the final scene of ‘Planet of the Apes’, with a broken Statue of Liberty, sticking out of the sand.
It comes as no surprise, that a Prime Minister who called a snap general election and then failed to turn up for an election debate, should add to the list of incompetencies, with a European Union Notification of Withdrawal Act that is somewhat unsatisfactory, legally.
