Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Possibly the first of many Conservative Party trial balloons about re-entry into the EU.

One supposes that in the long run, the UK (or whatever remains of it a decade from now) being a minor appendage to the second-largest of the global economic blocs might not work out all that well. As has been discussed ad infinitum. But as the predicted side effects materialize:

Tobias Ellwood, MP for Bournemouth East, argued there is an "appetite" to make "course corrections" to the current model, claiming recent polling suggests "this is not the Brexit most people imagined".

It is interesting to read the articles where British globetrotters complain about passport delays and border queues. Probably the majority of pro-Brexit voters were in the "I'll take my holiday in Bournemouth thank you very much" crowd, and could not care less about passports or border queues.
