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

The comments are stock Brexiter thinking. I'd guess they're nothing to do with astrology.

As it happens I know an astrologer. I showed her the post and she said "That's not the Brexit chart."

So there's that. Then she looked at the Brexit chart, and said that this is an example of some very long cycles. Apparently the last time it rolled around the UK had a mad king and lost the War of Independence with the US. And the time before that Henry VIII was about to cut ties with the Pope and start the English Reformation, followed by a bit of monastery robbing. And the time before that was the last crusade in which England played a significant role.

Make of that what you will. She also said that this time there was a serious danger of an absolutely crushing loss of international power and prestige - like the War of Independence, but far worse.

She also sent me this, which made me laugh, so I'll post it here:

So the long and the short of is that every few hundred years the UK (or more precisely, England) goes a little mad and goes on some crazy escapades which break previous relationships, and these generally do not go all that well, although they do usher in a much changed era.

"England" has a need to express itself differently and independently from Rome, Europe or the colonies etc. and is not averse to some looting and pillaging at home or abroad. Brexit as a "absolutely crushing loss of international power and prestige" sounds about right...

Astrology or not, she might be on to something.
