Oliver's outing...

No, not the Cromwell variety - unfortunately* - but the chinless Tim nice-but-dim variety: Conservative Woman Brexit Wall of Shame: Sir Oliver Letwin, dancing with the enemy. Kathy Gyngell writes:
"The man who made Parliament go rogue is not a freedom fighter but a people pleaser. His great sense of entitlement plus a yearning for the Left’s approval is what’s turned him into such a dangerous fool. He may bask in the BBC’s new approval, he may finally have won what’s left of New Labour acceptance, but we, the amazed and horrified voter, only see the fallout of a silly and ego-inflated man’s actions..."
Or maybe not, he is still betraying Brexit but maybe his seeming foolishness is intentional in driving the possibility of triggering Treason May to deliver the coup de grâce of this weaponless coup d'état: "An anonymous civil servant argues that the PM may use executive powers to agree the Withdrawal Agreement with the EU and then ram it through parliament." [Briefings for Brexit]

* ..."Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?"... ... "You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!" Cromwell dismisses Parliament.
