Welcome to the Hotel California!
Imagine checking out of a hotel, handing over your room key, paying the bill of £39 billion and then being stuck in the foyer, with your suitcases at your feet, because the glass doors won’t open. You ask the receptionist when you can leave but she just smiles and says nothing.
I’m sure you recognise this Eagles-inspired metaphor. It’s why all good MPs, who care about our country, won’t sign this Orwellian-named Withdrawal Bill – a ReMayner’s Charter that could keep us as a member of the EU into perpetuity.
