OBSERVING from afar – and this week I have been on a walking holiday in a remote spot in the far north – it is not easy to make full sense of the dramatic events of this last week.

First we had the dramatic Cabinet meeting at Chequers where senior Ministers were warned if they quit in protest at Theresa May’s Brexit plans they would lose their ministerial cars immediately and would have to take a cab to the nearest station.

Then – after being safely chauffeured back to London – we witnessed the resignations of Brexit Secretary David Davis, followed very quickly by the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. I 
make that eight senior Ministers who have quit from the Cabinet in short 
order, which goes to show the volatile nature of our national politics at the moment.

And just when you think things will calm down a bit, we now have the visit of US President Donald Trump accompanied by infantile, self-indulgent protests by thousands of shrieking, virtue-signalling activists.

Funny, but I don’t remember them protesting against the state visit of King Abdullah........
