Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Every distopian nightmare scenario, up to and including Mad Max is probably gonna feature.

We now have idiots talking about "blitz spirit", which usually involves people who have no idea what they're talking about except what they saw in the film "Battle of Britain" (short version : they got the Rose and Crown but everybody was happy).

Because, having been promised endless wine and roses with an extra £350 million a week for the NHS, people are going to be perfectly fine with bread and meat rationing whilst hoping that the insulin supplies don't defrost in the lorry as it waits to clear customs.

We simply don't have the infrastructure to deal with shortages, the distribution networks aren't geared up the same way they were. People are going to starve in their 10s of thousands.

Come next winter, when people will bgin freezing and starving I suspect we may be facing a breakdown of society. There are a lot of weapons being smuggled into the UK at the moment according to the police and customs, but few of them seem to be for day to day crime. Which leads me to suspect that certain right wing elements are preparing for violent insurrections.

And where is Oswald Mosley when you need him?

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre

I think Tommy Robinsons sees himself leading this rabble, but I suspect shadier people will "take back control". Possibly Erik Prince may be on contract to tidy things up.

After all, none of the brexiteers mind if a few million paups starve to death, but absolute anarchy is bad for business credibility
