Storm Dave

You can't turn on the radio these days without over-excited, windy politicians and pundits huffing and puffing and threatening to blow your ears off with a hurricane of Brexit-related blether (I call this political weather event Storm Dave), so I was grateful to hear an unusually level-headed thought on the subject in the concise form of a tweet:
Paul E Johnson tweeted  "So we can't survive without being attached to Brussels. Oh dear."
Michael White replied "Nobody says that. Only that it would a) be tough b) not solve much c) rest on escapist fantasy funded by tax dodgers."

If only all radio interviews on the subject were that brief and to the point.
