This is the truth of the matter.

Brexit is a charade. The referendum was influenced by dodgy donations between Leave campaigns, partisan propaganda that drowned out the facts, and personality politics.

The more information we have, the more we know that the whole process should be stopped and re-examined.

But Theresa May will have none of it because she’s terrified of reprisals.

History will never forgive her – or David Cameron, for calling the referendum in a vain attempt to bring unity to his hopelessly divided rabble of a political party.

But that doesn’t help those of us who will have to live through the nightmare she is inflicting on us.

The mission of the Leavers to push through the self-destructive Brexit “to gain control of our country again” is akin to a parachutist cutting his cords to “gain control” of his descent.

It is time to abandon this folly immediately or at least give the now better-informed public the chance to vote again in another referendum in which its outcome is more decisive (“A 52-48 referendum would be unfinished business by a long way” – Nigel Farage, 16 May 2016).

Of course, the PM and her ministers will do neither. The reason: cold unadulterated fear.

I believe that the Government is presently more scared of upsetting the nasty element among the Brexiteers than it is of global warming, the resurgence of the far right or an attack.

The refusal to cancel Brexit or hold another referendum out of fear of increased hate crime or civil unrest is like a surreal Wild West movie in which the nervous town sheriff – Theresa “Water Pistol” May” – cowers under the mob rule of a band of local gunslingers whose leader has scarpered.
