quoting Niall Fergusonvia Evening Standard
Thursday, October 3, 2019

Boris Johnson has bet the farm on one thing, and one thing alone: boredom. When James Cleverly, the Conservative Party chairman, admitted he was “quite bored of Brexit”, he certainly spoke for party members, who can’t wait to be shot of the whole process: a sundering from the European Union that they believed (because the  Vote Leave campaign told them) would be a quickie divorce but has turned out to be a frustratingly protracted and fiddly diplomatic nightmare.
