Will the end of May come in July? Boris' Brexit bombshell threatens to sink Theresa

5 99 16

According to the old saying (usually attributed to Lenin, but without citation), "There are decades when weeks happen and there are weeks when decades happen."

This looks like one of those weeks. And it's still only Tuesday.

For a start, and let's get our priorities right, England is appearing in its first World Cup semi-final for 28 years on Wednesday. If the Three Lions beat Croatia, which they are the favorites to do, then next Sunday England will line up in their first World Cup final since 1966, possibly – and you've got to love the irony given the Brexit squabbles – against Belgium.

However, due to the very silly politically-motivated boycott of Russia by the UK government (remember, no evidence has yet been produced that the Russian government was behind the Salisbury poisonings), no top officials or dignitaries will be in Moscow to see it.

If the prospect of England winning the World Cup in Russia wasn't a big enough story, we've also got the first state visit of US President Donald Trump to Britain coming up, too.

Then there's the latest development in the Amesbury poisoning case, which saw the death of Dawn Sturgess announced on Sunday night. That tragic news saw the usual suspects' line up to blame Russia, with one MP, Sarah Wollaston, even calling for the remaining World Cup games to be played somewhere else.

Evidence-free Russia-bashing looked like it would take center-stage yet........
