Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Don't forget Dunkirk, Suez, attempts to keep those pesky American colonists in line, the loss of empire throughout the world...  To these we may soon be to adding the loss of favoured trading relationships with the EU, Scotland, N. Ireland, London as the capital of the financial world...  But the deepest loss may be any sense of mutual connection and obligation between the working and ruling classes in England.  Brexit was a revolt in a deeply dysfunctional system.  It is unlikely to get any more functional unless I am underestimating the ingenuity of the ruling class...
