It’s not just the Emperor who’s naked

The PM feels very naked this morning; metaphorically of course.

But so too does Brexit.

And the Conservative Party.

Davos Man is beginning to shiver.

Whilst his friend at the President’s Club is, well, exposed.

The wrapping has, meanwhile, fallen off neoliberalism, making it clear it is only about increasing division.

That’s what it feels like. And everyone is beginning to say it.

Some will be in furious Humpty Dumpty mode: trying to push it all back on the wall again.

But the truth is neoliberalism has gone too far. It is irreparably damaged. The rot has set in. The only question is ‘how long?’

Apart, that is, from the bigger, and more worrying one, which is ‘what next?’
