Gosh the news is dreary and getting dearier!
Listening to all the details or lack of them for getting out of Europe has sent me back to sleep this morning...
It was inevitable I suppose but it's deeply depressing to people like me who never wanted the divorce in the first place....and that's what it's started to sound like...partners, no longer finding their relationship compatible , looking for ways of making it acceptable to everyone else...
David Cameron getting out before the going got tough makes complete sense but Mrs May has two problems , to get out with the best possible financial arrangements for our economy whilst maintaining the tough woman stance she is taking up.
It's not a job anyone would want .
And yet ....she has to be seen being strong and determined.......the impression to be given is that she will allow no one to take advantage of her.
At the same time the photographs appearing of her relaxing and smiling show a woman confident of her femininity.
I really hope she can pull it all off but I suspect the task ahead of us is going to be much more difficult than anything we are yet aware of. Because pleasing everyone, over there in Brussels, and the rest of the world as well as here at home is such a mammoth task that at some stage she will find that she can't please everyone.
Getting out and staying friends with everyone is clearly never going to happen...I just pray we can stay stable as a country whilst leaving Europe.
The complications are legion...everyone here has a view , it's not going to be easy.
With any luck our attention to what is going on in America will take centre stage and take our minds off the detail of who gets what in this massive divorce settlement.
No one could be bored...but it did send me back to sleep earlier...it's not so much soporific as a simple refusal to accept that we really did vote for all this!
And we have months, years of it to live through. Arghhhh!
