Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

Don't forget Dunkirk, Suez, attempts to keep those pesky American colonists in line, the loss of empire throughout the world...  To these we may soon be to adding the loss of favoured trading relationships with the EU, Scotland, N. Ireland, London as the capital of the financial world...  But the deepest loss may be any sense of mutual connection and obligation between the working and ruling classes in England.  Brexit was a revolt in a deeply dysfunctional system.  It is unlikely to get any more functional unless I am underestimating the ingenuity of the ruling class...

Well, they did build a nice wall with the EU (and even paid for it)....

I think you'll find Hadrian's wall was to keep the Scots out... and they never made it to Ireland...

My English English teacher used to tell us that Ireland was an Island of Saints and Scholars while the Britons were wondering around naked painted with woad...  No wonder the Romans tried to keep them out.
