It’s downright shameful that Theresa May has promised a free vote on fox hunting but not on a Brexit deal

Let us put aside party politics, and accept that the leaders of the two principal parties no longer appear able to see the wood for the trees – certainly not if there is a fox running through it.
They appear to have lost all sense of self-parody. They are “penny-wise and pound-foolish”, focusing all too often on what is unimportant while ignoring that an MOAB – a Mother Of All Brexits – is heading at speed in our direction.
All the while, highly prized, tax and cash-generative companies and citizens are voting with their feet. Even Goldman Sachs, whose employees Theresa May had warned in a secret speech in May last year that Brexit would result in companies leaving the UK, has now accepted London’s status as a financial hub could “stall”. Along with other banks, it is planning to relocate thousands of its people.
