Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wenn Ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen.

Herzl's epitaph to Altneuland (one of the funniest books I've ever read). If it worked for Zionism, why shouldn't it work for Brexit?

from wiki describing plot of oldnewland;-

The duo arrives at the time of a general election campaign, during which a fanatical rabbi establishes a political platform arguing that the country belongs exclusively to Jews and demands non-Jewish citizens be stripped of their voting rights, but is ultimately defeated.

the trouble with fantasies is that they only bear the slightest resemblance to actual reality. In real life, the rabbi won.

It may now represent the zionist fantasy, but I don't think we're at the end of history just yet and there are more whirlwinds to be harvested yet

keep to the Fen Causeway
