I said it was delivered
under the radar, i.e. parliament in recess, long festive break etc, a 'good' time to bury bad news, probably hopes that by the time parliament convenes in the new year it will be forgotten about.
He didn't need to say it, but I'm glad he did, it might finally wake up his apologists who support Remain who've been kidding themselves he had some long-term master plan leading to a People's Vote. He doesn't want one, he's a Brexiter, always has been, always will be.
I hope everyone rests up and has a nice Christmas, because in the new year the shit is really going to hit the fan...
