"Post-Brexit British politics has become detached from rational calculation or, perhaps, operates according a rationality of its own."
My personal #Brexit hero, Prof. Chris Grey, has published his latest blog (entitled "Britain - the neighbour from hell". Don't pull your punches Chris!). It's a cracking read, and it piles on the evidence about the cavalier and deliberately antagonistic way that this UK Government is approaching post-brexit issues.
"So the Danse Macabre of Brexit continues, with fantasy and reality locked in a grotesque embrace, or what The Sun would perhaps call a ‘steamy clinch’."
The indefatigable and voluble Professor Chris Grey publishes the latest on the #brexit omnishambles, this one focusing on the recurring fantasy loop of Brexiters that will never resolve.
"The continued lying and cheating (over #Brexit) is truly disgraceful. It demeans Britain and even those of us who bear no responsibility for it are in turn demeaned" 🇬🇧🇪🇺📉https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/06/britains-brexit-shame.html
Professor Chris Grey posts another classic post about the ongoing mega-omni-shambles.
"How do you deal with a country that continually lies and cheats in a way unlike a normal state, yet is not a rogue state either? With a country that keeps saying it wants only to be a friend, but keeps behaving like an enemy?"
Another of Prof. Chris Grey's thoroughly readable blog posts.
Bulgaria used to be an object of criticism and ridicule for a certain section of the British press and public.
Soon it'll be aspirational
"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
Once again, Prof. Chris Grey nails the issue around lies, laws and #Brexit; how Brexit created Johnson, and how Johnson is deconstructing regulation and due process. The scandal unfolds... https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/04/the-brexit-roots-of-scandals.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
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
"No amount of grandstanding about Global Britain can conceal the squalid mess Johnson and his cronies have made back at home" https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/03/the-great-brexit-bodge-job.html
Indeed. Some weekend reading from the ever-insightful Prof Chris Grey on the #Brexit megashambles
For those following David Frost's fantasies about the EU, and his role in screwing up our relations with the world's most important (and geographically our closest) trading body; you may want to read Prof. Chris Grey's comprehensive destruction of his latest missive https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/03/fisking-frost.html
The UK is trapped in a #Brexit loop, doomed to endlessly replay the supposed 'battles' of sovereignty while the rest of the world moves on https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/02/brexit-constipation.html
Professor Chris Grey's latest blog post is depressing (the brexit ultras will never confront their own shortcomings) and comforting (people like Chris Grey will never stop pointing out the reality of what happened)
There are strong parallels - and differences - with #Wales, in this interesting article about the north east of England and #Brexit https://fedtrust.co.uk/the-north-east-of-england-economic-and-political-challenges-and-opportunities-post-covid-and-post-brexit/

"Welcome to ‘real #Brexit’ – because it’s the only one there is." https://chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.com/2021/02/the-brexit-weve-got.html
Professor Chris Grey describes some of the hard truths which are starting to become apparent to UK Government - though whether it will impact on the behaviour of politicians is another matter!
