I think there are serious problems with accelerating Brexit negotiations.

David Davis, the Chief Brexit negotiator, was the one who persuaded May, along with Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, to go for an early election.

Sir Lynton Crosby warned that the poll lead of 20 points was “soft” and nearer to 10% but May, Davis et al rushed in like the Gadarine Swine and we all know what happened to them.

The EU will see May as a hologram with a limited lifespan, with a death sentence hanging over her, and Davis as a man with flawed judgement on borrowed time (May’s replacement may not wish to keep him).

The reshuffled Cabinet has the whiff of death about them so it is time for a new leader and a clean sweep.

Political blood needs to be spilled sooner rather than later, in the national interest.
