Today’s article is late. With very good reason. Your Editor has only just got back into this universe as the last 10 hours have been spent in a parallel universe. Well, I say parallel. This leads the reader to assume an identical universe. Not so! As you can see from the image, I had the company of a delightful young lady whose residence you see behind her is somewhat larger than my modest first floor flat in Cornwall! I am of course a gentlemen and readers will therefore allow me to be discrete and say no more!
Whilst I was away it seems a certain Mr Gove was interviewed by Mr Nick Robinson.
Mr Gove’s vision through which we would gain access to the Single Market is a fantasy. There is however a bizare logic to it! You see if the Chameleon can get away with a pretend treaty, why shouldn’t Mr Gove and Vote Leave get away with having a completely fictitious European free trade zone?
This is getting almost like the Goons – the sketch where Neddy Seagoon decides to hold up a bank to get some money. He doesn’t have a gun so he goes in and waves a colour photograph of a gun at the bank staff. They give him a colour photograph of some money.
We are descending into the depths of the surreal. There is nothing here, any more – nothing real – that we can take seriously. Perhaps we’ve slipped unknowingly into a parallel universe. But then that is impossible as I have just arrived back from one!
