Threat almost over as far as ministers are concerned
We’ve all been entertained this week by the stream of Tweets from the ex-political editor of the Mail and former chief aide to the BrexSec DDavis, James Chapman.
It has livened up what had been a quiet August and provided some interesting revelations and attacks on his the man who was his boss until June.
But moving to a position where he’s now describing the PM as a “Nazi” suggests he has gone too far. Godwin’s “law” has come into play and Chapman, I fear, is going to be taken a lot less seriously.
Theresa May is many things, most seriously for her party an election loser, but she cannot be equated to the Germans in the second world War.
Chapman will start to fade and his Tweets less potency. This is a great pity because some of his points and observations on the implications of Brexit seemed highly relevant.
