The ill-fated Soviet revolutionary, Leon Trotsky, memorably said – some years before he departed this world with an ice-axe in his head – “You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.”

You are already forgiven if you have long ago lost interest in that dreary carry-on called Brexit. Yet we must paraphrase Comrade Trotsky here and say: “But Brexit is interested in you.”
