I do fear that the latest block by Parliament to 'Get Brexit Done’ Boris Johnson style will be seen by a majority of the public as obfuscation as opposed to a sensible delay to ensure an orderly exit from Europe.

An electorate so fatigued by the Brexit saga understandably wants the issue decided upon and MPs pushing the narrative that leaving on October 31 will be the end of it are playing on the public’s fears and weariness.

Ministers voted at the weekend, on a day that was crassly dubbed ‘Super Saturday’ (regardless of which side of Brexit you fall on, there is nothing entertaining about it) by 322 to 306 for an amendment, which delays approval of Johnson’s deal to leave the EU until all of the required UK laws have been passed in Parliament.

Despite the fact that the amendment, tabled by former conservative MP Oliver Letwin, will allow proper scrutiny of the deal and act as an insurance policy against a no-deal crash-out from the EU when the transition period ends in December next year, by voting for it, Parliament has been accused of thwarting the Prime Minister’s efforts to put an end to Brexit once and for all.

This is an accusation that, put simply, isn’t true. The general public is fed up with Brexit.

Indeed, you’ve got to hand it to Dominic Cummings, Johnson’s controversial advisor, who coined the excellent slogan ‘Get Brexit Done’ because that is precisely what people want.

After three and a half years of talking about Brexit, people want it to be over, they want it to stop.

But what many people seem oblivious to is the fact that the act of leaving the UK on October 31 - or another date - is only a very small, if still significant, part of the exit process. Leaving Europe was only ever the beginning of what’s to be an arduous process.

The next stage, which involves negotiating future relations between the EU and UK, including a trade deal, will involve just as much, if not more, work and will prevent Brexit moving off the political agenda for years to come. Johnson knows this, obviously. As does Cummings. But who cares about truth anymore or informing the public with all the facts.

Johnson and others who are blaming ministers who voted for the Letwin amendment for causing unnecessary delays to Brexit are doing democracy a disservice. Labour MP Caroline Flint, who was ready to defy her party and vote for Johnson’s deal on Saturday, has described the amendment as a “panic measure”.

But the panic is with those ready to rush through a deal without due consideration.

Voting for it without an economic impact assessment, let alone an opportunity for sufficient debate around its detail, is reckless. Furthermore, it is downright stupid for any MP to believe any commitments from Johnson on workers rights and environmental standards.

This is a Prime Minister who has prorogued Parliament and misled the Queen for his own gain, not to mention throwing the DUP under the bus when it suited him. He will not think twice about backtracking on a promise.

As much we continue to complain about the Brexit merry-go-round, it appears there is one section of society that can’t get enough of it.

Universities have seen a huge increase in the number of students wanting to study Politics, which means the endless Brexit deliberations is a boon, at least, for them. Liverpool University, for example, has trebled the size of its politics department because of a surge in applications since the 2016 EU referendum.

According to lecturer Jon Tongue, other big events such as the Scottish independence referendum and the 2015 general election, have also boosted applications.

"It is a terrible thing to say, but the more unhealthy and divisive the debate is, the better it is for politics departments in terms of bums on seats," said Professor Tonge.

I suppose young people deserve something to revel in at the minute, considering that they’re faced with the real prospect of being cut off from opportunities in Europe once/if Brexit actually happens.
