Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I still don't understand why even ostensibly pro-EU commentators buy the line that the EU are being difficult and/or trying to punish the UK.

It's part of the Brexit narrative: EU is a racket and since the Britons want to escape to freedom, the Eurocrats want to punish them, out of sheer spite and to terrorize the other hostages members.

The myth of nasty Continentals is so powerful that even pro-EU commentators can't help buying into it, as you noted (why can't you tolerate our intolerance?).
