I BELIEVE William Shakespeare, a man of many words, must be turning in his grave as he could not come up with anything near or envisage any plots to cover the absolute ignominious fiasco and failure of the whole of the ineffective Westminster tribe and its cack-handed attempts at Brexit. They could not even organise a p*** up in a brewery. Jeffery Archer would also struggle, and he once attended the Westminster funny farm.

If it was not so serious it could be put on the stage as a farce, it would run for years and years and would be the only light relief to come out of this unbelievable exercise in chicanery.
