After the horrific news occupying the news of the past weekends, this last weekend in July has been quiet. But one issue is not going away, and that is Brexit. To start with, let’s enjoy the comment by Peter Oborne:

Daily Mail

Lefties loathe him but the truth is Nigel Farage changed history

The ineluctable fact is that Farage has changed history. One day, there may even be a statue of Farage. I very much doubt there will be one of David Cameron or Tony Blair. Of course, the MEP is widely hated. I admit that I once called him a ‘notorious loudmouth’. The truth is that the liberal elite (who, by nature, are slavishly Europhile) have always tried to depict him as a buffoon. But that was a fatal mistake. For Farage is motivated by deeply patriotic values that struck a chord with a majority of the British people. Though Farage enjoys a joke and a pint (rather like Ken Clarke on the other side of the European divide), he is a serious politician. He did not just lead a revolt against Brussels. He was also the leader of a parallel insurgency against the arrogant elite of Westminster.

Do read the whole thing, before delving into the rest of the news!
