I don’t know about you, but I really do wish all this politics malarkey would go away for a bit, so I can concentrate on the things I should be doing at the time of year ­— like writing Christmas cards and decorating the tree.

What began as a regular trickle of tidbits about the latest on Brexit has become a tsunami of developments, each one more gobsmacking than the last.

In recent weeks, my frustration at the shambolic way all our politicians — on all sides — have tackled this issue since the referendum two-and-a-bit years ago has been replaced by a kind of bemused horror.

Watching events unfold around Brexit is like watching Donald Trump’s Twitter feed.

You know that his latest Tweet is real, but it’s so bizarre and idiotic that it’s initially difficult to process and comment on.

Whichever way you voted in 2016 — I voted Remain and although I vehemently disagree with the whole notion of Brexit I understand why many voted to Leave — it is undeniable that we are now in the middle of such a shambles.

It is impossible in politics to please all the people all the time, but with Brexit it appears no one is happy.

Brexiters say the Prime Minister’s deal is not fit for purpose. Those who wish to remain in the European Union will not be happy with any deal (whether they respect the referendum result or not) because by default they don’t want to leave. There are others who want a ‘People’s Vote’ and/or a second referendum.

Even those who are indifferent about the whole sorry mess are appalled by the behaviour of our MPs.

This week, we had a Labour MP picking up the mace in the House of Commons as some sort of weird and totally pointless protest.

Whenever someone speaks in a debate there are politicians from all sides braying and screaming like boorish children.

The fact is that we have a Conservative government that has gone into total meltdown at a time when they should be putting the country first, not petty power plays.

As they forced a vote of confidence and push for a new leader, Theresa May, continues to cling on to power, like Leonardo Di Caprio hanging on to that piece of wreckage in the movie Titanic.

Everything has conspired against May; her government was held in contempt of parliament, she had to delay the meaningful vote at the last minute and she even got locked into her own ministerial car on her trip to Berlin on Tuesday.

The problem is that Brexit is not an issue that can be divided neatly into party politics.

Labour is also culpable — it has been unable to capitalise on the omnishambles, as MPs on their side of the House are split on the issue too.

As Christmas approaches — a time for pantomime and fairy tales — it could not be a more apt time for this farce to play out.

Who will be living happily ever after at the end of it all remains to be seen.
