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

"It would be a pity to fail even to try to stop Brexit"

Corbyn has never looked much like he was really against Brexit...

As for Trump, he probably repulses more British voters than he attracts.

As for electoral chances, the date is vital. If after a crash-out, the Brexit Party will go pop and the Tories will pick up the pieces, sufficient for them to win a Parliamentary majority in a FPTP system.

If before (a "government source" now says 14 October for the election) the Brexit Party would tear a chunk off the Tories' vote and make a Labour victory possible.

But Pfeffle just loves his role of keeping people guessing. Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, as you say.

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

Boris is a true soul mate to Trump.

Corbyn has come out against a no-deal Brexit. But is there any relatively sure way to stop a default no deal BREXIT other than replacing Boris? Could Parliament pass legislation that would actually prevent a no deal exit? It was only when the Parliamentarians became convinced that the only way to stop Charles I was to cut off his head that they made any real progress, even if it was a bloody slog for the next few years.
