Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Melo, that is the discourse of the British right, and true, the discourse of some right parties in Europe. They are unhappy with the social and regulatory order imposed by the EU and therefore blame it for everything that is bad. Their goal is sole and simply to dismantle the EU. They abject people like me, symbols of an acquired level of social mobility that is unprecedented in History. Naturally they understand how an EU without social or geographical borders is threatening the Conservative ideal. For now they prevail by instilling all sorts of external fears into citizens, but reality will eventually impose itself on them.

And the ridiculous claim we are punishing the UK. Like it was us who voted them to leave. Their purgatory is exclusively of their own making. I reject any responsibility on the predicament of that vagrant nation.
