"Rather as happened with the confident predictions that the First World War would be over by Christmas, we are now stuck in a long, gloomy and vicious culture war of attrition. In those trenches, even the dimmest, most chinless, subaltern no longer talks blithely of sunny uplands to come."
Prof. Chris Grey says it how it is in his latest blog post about the uber-shambles of #Brexit
This article on the challenge for the political parties in #Cymru is excellent https://www.herald.wales/national-news/labour-win-leaves-every-party-with-problems/
Guess we'll find out later today #senedd21

A Quiet Revolution; an article on #indywales in the Guardian newspaper
The UK press rarely reports on why such dysfunctional and corrupt people are products of this system, but other journalists are more forensic https://www-spiegel-de.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.spiegel.de/international/europe/how-eton-college-perpetuates-problems-in-the-uk-a-1280694-amp.html
Wow, the #IndyWales movement gets a tiny mention in this 'Federal Trust' article about 'Labour, Brexit and the Constitution' https://fedtrust.co.uk/labour-brexit-and-the-constitution-waiting-for-the-dog-to-bark/
No consequences, no responsibility and certainly no shame. As Prof Chris Grey points out (https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/04/the-irresponsibility-of-brexiters.html) the Brexiters are still refusing to acknowledge their role in the chaos that #Brexit is creating in Northern Ireland, for the business community and for hundreds thousands of people here and in the EU
If only #Wales had this sort of perspective...
I'm amazed to see how many of these 'urfascism' principles could be applied to the #brexit idealogues. #UmbertoEco
Professor Chris Grey's latest blog post focuses on the apparent ratcheting-down of tension between the UK and the EU; and suggests that it's the prelude for another #Brexit convulsion to satisfy the ultras in the press and on the backbenches https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/04/a-brexit-reset.html #UKPol
