Mr Javid has not only that tank for his personal ass but a second cushion as well. He can always defend with the argument that he is only implementing the will of the people on Brexit. One of the big differences between WW1 and WW2 is that in WW1 after the allied victory the people of Germany were punished for the war with the payments of the Versailles treaty (leaving the barons untouched) and in WW2 after the allied victory the barons themselves, the Nazi criminals of Germany were punished in Nuremberg. A troubling development indeed for the barons. A bit like that older troubling development when in the wars between nobility and town citizens around 1300, the old tradition to spare the life of the knights in exchange for ransom money was left and killing the knights and nobility on the battlefield became more common. The lessons learned from Nuremberg by the barons: Don't start war yourselves but first organise some direct democracy effect marching on their crusade and then just help them by leading the way.
