But No More

By my reckoning, more members of the present Shadow Cabinet than of the present Cabinet voted Leave. I am naming no names, but I know what I know.

Then there are the staff, and the unofficial but hugely influential advisers.

As a comment on an earlier post put it, "Jeremy Corbyn is surrounded by supporters of Brexit while no supporter of Brexit is allowed anywhere near Theresa May."

Nor any longer talked of as a potential successor to her. 

Sajid Javid and Jeremy Hunt were both Remainers in 2016, and Hunt even wanted a second referendum. Perhaps he still does. The dark horse is Gavin Williamson, who is another Remainer. 

This is what you get when you lose by two to one and your Somewhere Else To Go collapses before everyone's very eyes.

Jacob Rees-Mogg used to be on the airwaves several times every day. But no more.
