By July of that year he was on the back benches after the referendum he had opposed was won by Leave and the world of May 2016 had ceased to exist.

G.K. Chesterton said: “He is a very shallow critic who cannot see an eternal rebel in the heart of a conservative. "

"We take our bearings, daily, from others. To be sane is, to a great extent, to be sociable." - John Updike
