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

Fait accompli - French expression meaning a deed already accomplished and therefore something you can do nothing about. What Bozzer would like to produce re Brexit.

Note: No "t" at the end of "accompli". And an "s" only when speaking of a plurality of faits accomplis ("s" after each word). Here endeth the French lesson. ;)

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
