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

One aspect I did not mention in the article is the Brexit party. If there is a prorogation to the transition period it is certain to overtake the Conservative party in polls. That could happen even with a FTA agreement in place, what they now call "Brexit only in name".

Therefore I expect a definite exit to unfold pretty soon.

There was a point in time when I thought the Brexit Party could replace the Tories as the dominant conservative party in the two party fptp dialectic. But Farage sold out his own party in favour of Conservative candidates in marginal constituencies and so I don't think the Brexit party will ever come back as a major force. For all intents and purposes, the Conservative Party now IS the Brexit party with hardly any remoaners or even moderates left within its ranks.

Last night's Commons vote is a case in point. Yesterday the Guardian was talking up a big Tory "rule of law" rebellion... It amounted to 20 Tory abstentions, and zero votes against...
And today I can't even find an article on the subject on the Guardian site!

One must wonder what the likes of Theresa May and Geoffrey Cox did last night.
