And for my next trick!
I might get this past my sub-editor, or I might not. We are currently looking to engage an entertainer for the next Hammers Awards taking place on November the 14th – a comedian, or a magician, either would do. It struck me that either of these roles could be taken by our current PM, who, after October the 31st might be looking for a new job.
Both of his talents are in evidence as we approach the critical date – his propensity for facetiousness and the humerous phrase to hide his vacillation between a variety of ill-prepared outcomes, and his belief that when the day arrives he will be able to pull something out of the hat. Hey Presto!
It’s a serious issue for the country, though, which will be hit hard if we exit without a deal. That’s not speculation, that’s fact, which is why the Government is putting wads of cash away to support farmers and manufacturers who will lose their markets, builders and contractors who will have to pay more for their supplies whilst losing their investors and skilled employees, and even holidaymakers who will have to cough up more for their coffees on the Champs Elysee.
What is most at stake, though, is the prestige of the country, the global belief that we are a sober and industrious, even gifted, country with a stable and coveted parliamentary democracy, a fair and well-integrated community and a strong belief in the order of things. We have thrown all that away with the dirty Brexit bath water. Who will ever trust us again?
