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

Former UK ambassador to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, hits nails on the head in a speech reported in The Guardian:

He also said there was no chance that the UK would be able to disentangle itself from the EU even if Brexit goes ahead.

He said: "These fantasies of release and liberation - they are fantasies. We are going to be negotiating on everything from aviation to farming for evermore with our biggest neighbour. We cannot live in glorious isolation. Talk to the Swiss and to the Norwegians - they live in a permanent state of negotiation with the EU."

The whole thing is worth a read.

I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
