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

Guess what?

UK goes third-country. Round II of Fresh or Refrigerated Meat? summit immediate begins.

EU-UK ENVOYS schedule the first of annual bi-lateral trade negotiation. The UK [Crown in the] parliament debates and passes a raft of block no-deal bills, because the current PM (whoever the fuck that is) said in an interview that all tariffs are off the table.

There won't be any substantive post no deal Brexit EU/UK trade negotiations until 3 core issues of Withdrawal Agreement are sorted first:
  1. 39 Billion
  2. Rights of EU citizens in UK
  3. Irish border, Good Friday Agreement, all Ireland economy.

I am possessed by an extremely refined sense of humor.

Now my Robert was an uncanny soul, yanno a textbook scorpio, who scarcely tired of Three Stooges comedy. Sometime he'd stop a bit on the cable telly. He squeezed shut his eyes. A long wheeze would pass between his lips. The cigarette dangling between his trembling fingers would wag. That's how we knew. Our child and I were frequently astonished by his laughter. "What happened?" we'd ask.
