"getting Brexit done."
Quite frankly, if you are saying this you are brain-dead. Brexit will not be "done" within ten years, possibly longer. The racism of brexiteers (the main driver of their thinking) will come back to bite them big-time. And there is absolutely no guarantee of a trade deal by Johnson's promised deadline. In fact, if he hasn't gone crawling to the EU for an extension within six or seven months I'll eat my hat.
One more thing. The appalling stats for A&E waiting times, the worst ever, and a national disgrace caused solely by Tory misrule, should have been released yesterday. Some "watchdog" or other forced a delay until today because "things like that shouldn't be released on polling day." Well I bloody well think they absolutely should be. In a democracy we should have all legitimate information to hand before we vote. It wouldn't have made much difference because parties aren't allowed to make hay on polling day, but a very important principle of democracy was breached there.
