Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
scapegoats will be sought and I hope Boris Johnston is high on that list.

If only. I fully expect the Brexit crowd to point at the EU's "intransigence", to deflect the blame, then, if the situation deteriorates, accuse the Continentals of organizing a blocus to turn plucky Britain into a vassal state, conjuring shades of the "darkest hours" and the famous "blitz spirit".

Blaming Johnny Foreigner has always been a winning formula for UK pols; I don't expect Brexit to change that; quite the opposite, actually.
