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

In is not the oppositions job to ensure the government can implement it's agenda.  If the UK Brexits without any deal it will be either because they have not been able to negotiate one, or secure the support of Parliament for one.  Many Brexiteers regard a "no deal Brexit" as probably preferable to any deal Brussels is likely to a offer, so they will be overjoyed and take ownership of that eventuality in any case.

Anyway, it will no longer be any concern of anyone else who cops the blame for Brexit in the UK.  Brexit means Brexit, after all, and words mean what Theresa in Wonderland says they mean.

Power corrupts, a truism.
That power could cause such hubris,rank condescension, and just plain appallingly bad manners boggles the mind, on both sides of the Atlantic.
The Anglo disease in all its horrible blowback, making governments go mad within their own halls.
If someone told me May was being paid to throw sand in every gearbox imaginable, it would ring truer than any other explanation.
Likewise with the Trumpephant, demolishing American institutions like a Gleeful Reaper from within its most exalted position of power.
It's all a bit Burning Man...

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
