Brexit will go the way of Palestinian state

Brexit will never happen in our lifetime. I have a fervent belief in the rule of law, the power of citizens and the quintessence of democracy. These values are the bedrock of our society.

However, no government will be astute enough to disentangle the UK from the EU for a myriad of reasons: our hospitals, universities, schools, shops, libraries, trains and buses will be savagely hit by the lack of workforce from the EU.

Brexit reminds me of the Oslo accords signed in 1993. It promised the creation of a Palestinian state through direct negotiations.

Twenty-four years on, the dream of Palestinian statehood remains more elusive than ever.
