Theresa May Falls on Her Sword

Only just not yet. Theresa May, desperate to win the support of the Boris Johnson faction for her Brexit "deal" has said she'll resign as prime minister as soon as the UK is out of the EU.

May's Tory insurgents want her out of the way before the government has to negotiate the next part, a future trade agreement with the EU.

Nigel Farage is on the air at the moment on LBC radio. He's beside himself, furious. He contends that May's "deal" will leave the UK at the mercy of the European Council for years and may result in the loss of Northern Ireland.

Farage's callers are lambasting Theresa May for betraying their country. They're  no more generous toward Boris Johnson who they think is selling them out to May to improve his chances of becoming prime minister.

As Ollie used to say to Stan, "This is another fine mess you've got us in!"

Yes, Owen, Laurel and Hardy is perfect.

Rumley, I was left with the impression that Farage isn't really as indignant as he contends.
