As I peer over my shoulder at the tiny island that had the temerity to leave the European Union and hear all the hullaballoo about Truss and the outgoing PM, Boris Johnson, flying up to Balmoral in Scotland, where our immobile monarch currently resides, in separate planes no less, during a fuel, food and cost-of-living crisis, when they could take a train (didn't we invent the railways?), that ceremony strikes me as the most glaring reflection of the parlous future facing UK communities.
