The sound of ideology smashing into the wall of reality is echoing around Whitehall

The UK government has issued its latest Brexit White Paper. Well, some of it is white. Five of the 44 pages are completely blank. Another 5 only have blue rectangles. One wonders how much time was spent in deciding what shade of blue was used. It must have been light relief from the much more difficult task of thinking of words to include. Yet it does say something. It seems to recognise that Brexit will be much more difficult than teh Leavers thought, and many will be very disappointed. But it also shows that the UK government still has very little clue if how to proceed.
My take on it can be seen in my latest BMJ blog, which you can read here.
