Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The usual suspects in Labour will try to stick this to Corbyn. That's probably their best chance. Although they might be to scared to actually take over the party now.

The European ruling classes will blame foreigners for it because the alternative would be that its their fault. Barbed wire manufacturers will prosper.

I suspect they'll copy and paste the TIPP in the new trade agreement with the UK. Passing this will become a matter of live and death.

This is a good opportunity to bury all sins in a recession that is not your fault. It's bailout time.

Nah. The Brits wont get any kind of customized deal at all. Whoever shows up with be told to sign up for the EEA or live with WTO rules, and that will be the only choices on the table.

The usual suspects in Labour will try to stick this to Corbyn.

Indeed, here's this already: Dismal, lifeless, spineless - Jeremy Corbyn let us down again | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian.

Predictably, this op-ed has no comments section... But Corbyn still has support:

The seismic referendum aftermath also led to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn pulling out of his appearance at the Left Field tent on Sunday, with a spokesperson saying he was focusing on "momentous" results.

Nonetheless, Corbyn's continued popularity with young voters was reaffirmed as mere mention of his name in the tent prompted a huge cheer.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
