Watching Theresa May trying to get her Brexit deal though parliament was like watching a person caught in a trap. She had no easy options; all choices were like doors marked with the word ‘danger’. It reminded me of Russia in 1917 between the February Revolution (when the monarchy fell) and the October revolution (when Lenin and the Bolsheviks came to power). The interim government was in an impossible situation, trying to create a new political system in the midst of a terrible world war. It was caught in a trap.

What has been totally lacking in the Brexit debate is any sense of what the European continent, of which Britain is a part, stands for in the wider world. The debate has been framed largely in the self-centred context of what is in Britain’s economic self-interest. Many, it is true, have seen Brexit as breaking out of a straightjacket imposed from abroad, leaving the UK free to enter into its own trade deals with the rest of the world—an issue of national sovereignty.
