Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's now clear, after yesterday's insults, that Boris is not just brazening it out, he is in full-bore fascist provocation mode. His intention is evidently to foment an uprising of those who (are increasingly being manipulated to) believe that they and they alone are "the people".

I don't believe Brexit is any more than a baby's rattle to be waved at this juncture. Sure, they have to have Brexit to get free of EU constraints (though there are Hungary, Poland to ponder...). But the game is broader in intent. It is to destroy Parliament, discredit the judiciary, and set up long-term ultra-right executive power.

Reading reports of yesterday's Boris bluster, Steve Bannon is said to have had several orgasms.

The only consolation (haha) is that Corbyn will not play fairy godmother and grant Bojo's wish for an immediate general election. But this does mean that Johnson will be trolling in full spate during the weeks ahead.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
