Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's becoming quite obvious that Johnson at least, and probably Gove and others within the Leave camp not only had absolutely no expectation of winning the vote, but absolutely no desire to win it.

They thought that, just like usual, they were playing some Great Game within the Tory party using the lives of millions of citizens as mere bargaining chips. It obviously never occurred to them that the stakes were higher than they imagined.

A truly Pyrrhic victory, one victory and they and all their dreams are utterly ruined. Cameron goes off to spend more time with his many millions and only his reputation lost. Jo Fox wasn't so lucky.

If the consequences weren't so awful for the entire country it would be impossible not to laugh. I imagine that much of the world is looking at us now in utter baffled amazement descending into helpless laughter.

tbh If the political classes actually want to avoid this disaster then they'd better have a good plan. I can imagine unlikely scenarios, but none that are remotely likely. And let us just agree that, based on previous performances, the chances of a good plan will from this lot be in short supply.

We're screwed. The people have spoken...the bastards

keep to the Fen Causeway
