I'm glad someone has found an exit from Brexit.

Unfortunately for the government, it's the civil servant who was meant to be leading it.

This is a sign of the chaos and division at the heart of this Government.

Conservative ministers are trying to drive through an extreme Brexit no matter the cost, ignoring expert advice from civil servants.

With Boris Johnson trying to grab the tiller of HMS Brexit, it's little wonder the rest of the crew are jumping ship.

This latest fiasco in the Brexit saga reinforces the need to offer the British people an exit from Brexit, with a referendum on the final deal.
