This is a brilliant, must-read op-ed article by Tim Farron, leader of the UK’s Liberal Party. He argues that it’s been three months since the EU referendum and we have heard plenty of nationalistic sabre-rattling from the three Brexiteer ministers holed up at Chevening – Messers Fox, Davis and Johnson – but still no plan.

Although I disagree with Farron’s policies, he’s sounding like an outstanding politician right now. What a contrast to the waffle and platitudes of Jeremy Corbyn, the favorite puppet of the hard-left in the UK.
Tim Farron might sound like an outstanding politician but that is because he is effectively competing with political pygmies and people who are very slow to grasp what the country needs to enable it to become effective, competitive and prosperous once more.
As Dr Alf knows, the current Labour Party full of Corbynistas and latter day “Dave Spart’s” are unelectable and unrepresentative of mainstream public opinion as well as being hopelessly out of date and infested with shrill harridans devoid of poise, femininity, dress sense or manners.
This latest piece via Dr Alf simply shows just how low we have sunk because Tim Farron is devoid of charisma, looks and sounds like a comprehensive school teacher I can remember from decades ago.
The idea that he and the Liberal Democrats, an assorted group of bearded Tofu eaters, environmentalists and ‘also- rans’, could form a Government with the likes of Liz Kendall and Chuka Umana and the weasel worded Owen Smith is laughable.
Certainly, the country needs an effective opposition but it will not be provided by Tim Farron, who lacks the presence or tough poise or knowledge to deal with people like Vladimir Putin, Xi Jin Ping, Hillary Clinton or, for the time being, Angela Merkel.
Somebody else needs to emerge and there needs to be a new opposition party led by somebody capable of dealing with world leaders, billionaires and inward investors as an equal.
Like the American groundhog, which hibernates until the Spring, that leader has yet to surface but when he or she does it will be obvious to everyone, Tim Farron is not that leader, simply a rather earnest little man who means well.
