I know I’m not alone in having those moments when you shout at the TV or radio when you hear what a politician’s said. It is of course easy to criticise and as a Christian I am told not to judge, so I need to challenge myself as I write this.
However there are times when things just jar.
I had one of those moments when Theresa May suggested extending the transition period to leaving the EU. Brexit is clearly not a simple job but it laid bare the elephant in the room, which is that we don’t know how to do this. Regardless of where you stand on Brexit, it’s clear that those advocating for Brexit didn’t have detailed plans for it. The effort went into the campaign. At no point during the campaign did a Brexiteer step off the shiny ‘£350 million quid a week for the NHS’ bus and discuss what Brexit would mean for the Irish border.
