It seems that, in order to honour the 2016 referendum result, we must echo Alice in Wonderland, and try to believe Six Impossible Things Before Brexit.
Theresa May has now made ideas previously dismissed as “delusional” central parts of her government’s Brexit policy. Now all she has to do is persuade the EU to go along with it — and she has less than two weeks to do it.
What does she want? We don’t really know. How will she get it? We don’t know that either.
So it makes perfect sense for us to try to figure out what’s likely to happen next as we blunder along this catastrophic road, kicking that battered can even further in the hope something magical might appear to make all this go away.
