Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the Murdoch quote shows why Murdoch is for Brexit. But from what I know of Brussels, it is not like there is no corporate power lobbying going on there.

The way I see it, we have both an ongoing internationalisation of decision-making where power is moved from the public and a reaction that is channelled towards nationalism. Which leads to bad choices like Clinton vs Trump or Macron vs LePen. Heads capital wins, tails labour loses.

Of course, different capitalist actors gain and lose from different outcomes. But they all gain when the reaction to Trump is passing CETA with its corporate courts.

Question is how to get out of this predicament. And right now, I have no clue.
