Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What sense of devotion to the general good (what on earth am I writing?) is there currently that might lead to the compromise necessary for the formation of a National government?

The notion of responsibility (of MPs, of ministers) has been slowly eroded over the 80-90 years since 1931 (but above all, I'd suggest, over the last 50) to the extent that the UK has a non-government hanging on by the skin of its teeth with little prospect of anything but the worst outcome for the country. The queen of "I'm in charge but I'm not responsible" is, of course, Theresa May.

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