Boris has made a terrific start

We have reached that stage in the Brexit political cycle when the distinguished historian Simon Schama takes to shouting on Twitter in CAPS calling the new Prime Minister “fatso.”

Objecting to reports that the cabinet and Whitehall have been put on a war-footing, a standard journalistic metaphor, Schama unwisely went online late on Sunday evening and said:

“can someone please stand up and start shouting (it wont be the weasel Corbyn) “YOU ARE NOT CHURCHILL, fatso, and the EU is not the Third Reich. You do not have a war cabinet because THERE IS NO WAR. How DARE you invoke the sacrifices of those fought one!”
