Brexit To The Max

There are those who want Brexit for the reasons that I do. Several of those reasons appeared as policy commitments in last year's Labour manifesto, because Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell had been campaigning for them since the Year Dot.

And then there are those who want Brexit for the sake of what, astonishingly, David Davis himself now calls, "a Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction." Those are his words for everything that the anti-EU New Right has advocated ever since there first came to be an anti-EU New Right in the twilight of the Premiership that had given us the Single European Act in the face of unanimous Labour Opposition.

Having ruled out his own supporters' reasons for Brexit, and having done so quite abusively, Davis is left only with Corbyn's and McDonnell's reasons. In which case, he should make way for Corbyn and McDonnell.
