Brexit start to resemble Monty Python's People's Liberation Front

News that there has been yet another break-away group formed to campaign in favour of Britain's exit from the European Union has an air of inevitability about it. After all, for a number of individuals involved in this campaign the main motivation appears to centre around their own ego rather than any particular principle.

The Telegraph reports that the latest break-away group involves up to 30 MPs including David Davis, the former Tory leadership candidate. He will support Go, a new grassroots organisation founded last week by the Tory MPs Tom Pursglove and Peter Bone and the Labour MP Kate Hoey.

This is the third group to campaign for Brexit, a collection that includes Vote Leave and Leave.EU. The Times say that some financial backers have told them that they are holding off making donations until the infighting calmed down.

As a fan of Monty Python, I am beginning to see a resemblance to the various splinter groups featured in The Life of Brian to free Judea. All we need now is a sketch in which the various groups discuss what Europe has done for us, Douglas Carswell telling a crowd that Nigel Farage is not the Messiah, he is just a very naughty boy, and a chorus of 'Always look on the bright side of life' as Britain votes to stay in Europe.
