At the Conservative Party conference, the leader of our Committee for National Salvation addressed an audience which will be dead before her Junta's illusions bring on the decline and despair which are their only possible fruits.

The older voters who voted for Brexit will die before their children and grandchildren have to pay for the consequences, not just of the Brexit vote but the way it has enabled a political coup - no bloodshed, no elections, no votes. A silent coup by people now coming out as noisy and nasty. If the NHS goes down the pan, the Brexit voters will probably die quicker than anticipated.

There are more important people to think about, those who Mr Fox aims to make very rich first among them.
