Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
EU can differ all it wants, there's no good way to force an Article 50 activation.

No one has to.  But prolonged uncertainty will damage the UK far more than the EU.

Had any been concerned about damaging the UK or Europe there would never have been a referendum. Cameron was almost entirely concerned with his career and tactical considerations. Short-termism has its price. Unfortunately that price will fall more heavily on the non participants. But that is how the system has evolved to work - to the extent it can be said to work.

The outcome of the election was - in effect - a big "FUCK YOU!" from those whose interests had for so long been ignored to the elites who had ignored them. Have the elites noticed?

Do they care? Should they care? What will the helpless do?  Take up arms? The English?   😆

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
