Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, that won't be needed:

UK's European commissioner quits in wake of Brexit | Politics | The Guardian

The UK's European commissioner, Jonathan Hill, is resigning, following Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

Lord Hill, the UK's most senior diplomat in Brussels, was sent to Brussels by David Cameron and took the highly prized portfolio of financial services. But his departure after Brexit was a foregone conclusion, as many European politicians oppose a Briton presiding over EU financial stability when the UK is on the way out. Several MEPs have already called on Hill to go.

Hill, said he did not think it was right he carried on as British commissioner as if nothing had happened.
