As to what is actually going to happen given Theresa May’s loss last night who knows. We can always hope, eh? We crash out to WTO terms on March 29th and we’re free at last. The betting money doesn’t seem to think so but that’s a measure of peoples’ views rather than anything else – it’s the weight of money moving the odds, not the bookmakers.

This is, of course, exactly what I predicted… Read more »
