THE note of rising dread in the prime minister’s voice as she announces a new Brexit White Paper is the UK’s new lullaby.

Tom Booker of Leatherhead said: “Oh, I know that tone. I’ve heard it in my own voice often enough.
“But this time it isn’t me who hasn’t done the work, or who’s done a shit job confident I’d get away with it, or realising I’ve made fundamental errors and then made it worse by lying. It’s her.
