Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Prime Minister in waiting, Boris Johnson, is speaking right now, saying the obligatory nice things about Cameron, but ultimately praising himself and the British people.  He wants to extricate Britain from the Supranational system and thinks that the UK is as united as ever - despite a 62% remain vote in Scotland.

Like everyone else, he is saying there is no need to activate section 50 any time soon.  The EU may beg to differ.  The last thing the world needs now is a prolonged period of uncertainty. He repeats all the shibboleths about Britain providing leadership to the world. I can't see many outside England paying much attention.

It is the end of "Great Britain".
