Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm afraid we have entered the phase of emotional irrationality where people are spoiling for a fight instead of solutions. BTW what was it that was deemed so 'humiliating' and 'disrespectful' at the summit? Tusk with the silly cake bit? Macron calling a spade a spade? Which reminds of the good times when Sarkozy told Cameron to "shut up".

'You're gonna respect us even if we have to jump off the cliff to show you!' The downside being not just the damage on British side but also a long-term strategic splintering. It will be very toxic. Will they turn themselves into an American colony (like some Brexiters are dreaming) just out of spite? A remarkable reversal of fortune and irony of history. Anyway, not good for Europe's wealth and security.

Schengen is toast!
