Macron’s troubles put Brexit into perspective

Viewed from deepest Brittany, where leaders of the gilets-jaunes movement are reportedly demanding that France withdraw from both the European Union and Nato while, en route, enacting a swingeing new wealth tax and doubling the raft of benefits payable to the poor, events at Westminster suddenly seem pretty tame.

The fact that a terrorist gunman was on the loose yesterday somewhere in the Strasbourg area, resulting in the nation being placed on a renewed state of high alert, only added to my sense that the problems of the Tory Party, and even the issue of Brexit itself, are in the end no more than a bitterly-contested domestic quarrel.
