    David Davis’ Brexit deal puts us on course for a calamitous act of national self-harm

    The entire Brexit project is descending into farce. The government is more vulnerable than ever to attack while Labour is two points ahead in the latest Survation polling and Theresa May’s government is taking an increasingly shambolic approach to departure from the EU.
