SO THAT we can impress upon the likes of Mr Michel Barnier, the European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator, and Mr Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president, that we are leaving the EU on time come what may, the Prime Minister should now declare March 29, 2019, as UK Freedom Day.

Mrs May could go further and say that it will be a Bank Holiday and that beacons will be lit right across the nation that night.

And that Big Ben will definitely toll joyously at midnight.
