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

Worst case scenario, but sadly a possible one. Johnson might survive a while longer if he is perceived to remain on the side of the Brexit party, but indeed these coming four years are looking quite a stretch. As I wrote above, Nigel Farage as prime-minister is not unimaginable at this point. If that happens, hot wars become a real possibility.

How far they are willing to go is also dependent on what happens to the White House. Will it remain hollow? Or will it host a President again? And through what ordeals? I doubt that with a functioning US government the Withdrawal Agreement would have been broken so easily.

No President for at least four years, maybe eight, maybe necer agin. They have all gone downhill after Eisenhower. Johnson, at least, pushed through Civil Rights legislation, and Medicare. OTOH, hotted up VietNam. Nixon tried to get out while saving face, but was a paranoid jerk. In the end, it was a rout anyway. Jimmy Carter sat and did nothing while Iran held hostages and the economy tanked. I could go on and on. Now we will either have the corrupt Orange Baboon or the senile corrupt founder of the Catfood Commission. Or will Harris really rule? Or is she just an Idpol cardboard cutout? Who really will call the shots? Look to see if Hillary Clinton gets a high cabinet post or replaces Harris as Harris replaces Biden, assuming the Senate goes (D).  My late Uncle (the son of Italian immigrants and WW II veteran) told me about ten years ago, "Maybe it's time for the family to move back to Europe."
