THE result of the local elections has finally brought home to the Conservatives and Labour just what a terrible mess they have made of Brexit. For, as expected, voters used them to demonstrate their anger and disappointment.

Now these politicians are desperately trying to come to a compromise. But this has nothing to do with delivering Brexit, as voted for in the Referendum, but just to avoid facing EU elections, at which they know they would be be marmalised.

Their attitude, quite frankly, stinks. They are self-seeking with their minds concentrated on saving their careers while swatting away the wishes of the public like an irritating fly.

If they do succeed in reaching an agreement the result will definitely not be what the electorate voted for and if they believe this will make all their problems go away they are going to be in for a very rude awakening indeed.

They have treated the public with scorn for many many years and got away with it. But they have poked the bear with a stick once too often now and there will be a price to be paid.
