The latest statement from the EU and UK promises that Brexit talks will be ‘accelerating’. A statement which may mean less than you think.

ALL OF THIS ACCELERATION NONSENSE IS A CUNNING, EUROPEAN PLOY TO TRICK US INTO REACHING SOME SORT OF DEAL! THERE CAN BE NO SURRENDER! WE MUST FIGHT FOR THE NO DEAL THAT OUR ANCESTORS LOST THE HUNDRED YEARS’ WAR FOR!

There’s also the chance that this whole ‘acceleration’ thing is just this week’s buzzword.

And if by this time next week talks are still stalled and May is talking about a ‘Great British Brexit on Toast’, we’ll know that it was.
