The old adage “How long is a piece of string?” has been updated. Future generations will be able to say “How long does is a Brexit?” The three and a half years so far is way beyond any prediction. Parliament has been ripped apart in such a comprehensive way we need to rewrite the history book.
In 1605 Guy Fawkes and a few of his mates failed to blow up the houses of parliament. He can rest in piece now; 414 years later current members of parliament have done it all by themselves. Concern now pervades as to whether parliament can ever recover and start to run the country again after three and half years of achieving nowt.
A real irony of the Guy Fawkes story is that our man Guy – also had an alias; ‘John Johnson’. And he wasn’t even the ring leader, this fell to Robert Catesby. Thus history is repeating itself. The real ring leader of Brexit could be considered to either Nigel Farage or David Cameron. We could possibly chuck in another three ringleaders; add your selection here…… and we have the Brexit plot. Eat your heart out Guy Fawkes!
