2019 - the year that Boris took on the lingering gloomadon-poppers , pledged to steer the UK between the Scylla and Charybdis of Corbyn and Farage and into the calmer waters of political freedom. Of course there was always bound to be a bit of plaster coming off the ceilings of Europe s Chanceries .
