Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, that has been clear for quite a while. The UK has been the epitome of 'perfidious Albion', trolling the EU from within and stepping it up on the way out.

It's always about the benjamins for the Brits, a nation of shopkeepers. The idealism, however ingenuous, felt in the EU for a closer unity has had its share of pragmatism for sure, but for the UK that's all there is.

A cynically insular posture that completely misses the point of having an EU at all.

Tawdry and embarrassing... and not over yet!
