Brexit begins

When it comes to Brexit, I fear the worst

Andrew Lilico, CapX
Until the election, Britain had got everything about Brexit right. Now, it has gone terrible wrong. The EU would happily do a deal with either May or Corbyn. But if it believes May might be replaced by Corbyn at any time, a deal becomes near-impossible.

The Brexit debate has been torn back open

Robert Colvile, CapX
Last night's debate between the heads of the Stronger In and Vote Leave campaigns was meant to be a walk down memory lane. Instead, it revealed how the wounds of the Brexit referendum are still gaping open. In addition, it showed that the strategic position of Leavers and Remainers has been flipped - to the latter's advantage.

May's Government is barely in office and a long way from power

Alex Massie, CapX
In case you were still in doubt, today's Queen's Speech made it clear that an election without winners has left the country in a state of peeved limbo. Also in limbo is the Prime Minister, who is yet to seal the DUP deal and will struggle to manage feuding factions over Brexit. We limp on, hoping things improve.
