Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How long can May continue flipping and flopping like a fish dying on a riverbank?
Are Ladbroke's offering odds on the length of how much time she has left?
Barnier has cut her some slack before, but I think the last ace of her silent appeal to pity (for her government crumbling as she prattles opaque banalities) has been played.
From now on its hardball, the time of cringe tragicomedy is passing away fast, now a much less sentimental future awaits our brave brexiteers as they set out over the briny deeps in their leaky little coracle of delusional nostalgia.
Doing and dying, it's resembling the magnificent indifference to reality of a second Charge of the Light Brigade.
Such courage, such bravery, such honour as they founder so haplessly.
Sic gloria transit mundi.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
