With the country divided, the cabinet in chaos, the Prime Minister hanging on to her job by a thread and the Brexit process descending into farce, Brexit Secretary David Davis has announced that he feels satisfied that his work is finished. ‘As I said at the time, there’s nothing simpler than Brexit – that’s why it’s gone so smoothly and there’s really nothing I have to do – it runs itself.’
‘Frankly I found the job a little tiresome’ he explained on the way out. ‘There was so little to do, so little that needing sorting out – I’d just go in every morning and work my way through ‘Puzzler’ magazine and then change the speed dial settings on the office phone.
