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

Oh, they will: Brexit has been constructed as first and foremost an anti-EU project; it needs an enemy - the Eurocrats - to prosper and to divert attention from the looting taking place. The main Brexiter's premise was for the UK to be out of the EU (no budget,no regulations) and yet, to retain unlimited access to the EU's single market.

Since cake is not on the menu, the enmity will keep growing. It is an asymmetrical phenomenon though: the Brexiter are more interested in waging war on the EU, while the EU is chiefly interested at protecting its single market and citizens. Many EU leaders are avowed anglophiles (Tusk, Rutte), and the EU as a whole is certainly not looking at the possibility of a failed state with a strong military just off its coasts.

Every banana is a work of art.

Warhol only showed the outside of the can of Campbells tomato soup. Should have invited N.E.One to consume contents on video.
