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

Support for EU membership in Ireland has never been higher, at 88% overall, and 99% among students. Brexit has reminded everyone of the benefits of the EU that are all too easily taken for granted. Every day, as the clusterf*ck that is Brexit is further revealed, that number is likely to grow, not diminish.

Schadenfreude doesn't quite capture the sense of ones former colonial masters and betters getting their comeuppance... It's more like a role reversal with the UK becoming the supplicant begging the master not to go too hard on them.  Karma if you wish, but all to many Irish have historical memories of the position being reversed.

So there will be no gloating, instead a genuine fellow feeling and willingness to help.  But at the moment we can do nothing. The UK is determined to do this all by itself, and delusions of Irexit only demonstrate how out of touch Brexiteers are.
