Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I just had a thought. What if the Brexit schism (or blowup that we hope for) in the Tory party doesn't really happen? What if the Brexiteers swallow the phase two agreement, anything to just get the government over the March 2019 finish line and then declare victory?

During the transition period (status quo without vote) they may be tempted to say 'See, nothing changed! Everything is the same unlike what project fear said. And total sovereignty is just around the corner'. Then, in the medium-term, when Brexit really starts to bite, it's due to someone else's incompetence. 'Nothing to do with Brexit' even.

Schengen is toast!
