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

These are people for whom the sun would never have set on the British English Empire if it wasn't for those sneaky Brussels eurocrats stealing it from us.

As far as they're concerned, the world owes us a living and, as soon as we're free, they'll be beating a path to our door to offer us the most marvellous trade deals you can imagine. Boris  and Dr Fox both assure us it's true. And there'll be at least £350 million a week for the NHS.

....(unless it's just £100 million)

.....(unless Theresa says no)

keep to the Fen Causeway

The Davos crowd is unimpressed:

UK slips on Davos ice - Politico

Brits may have the second-highest number of delegates at the annual gathering of the global elite here in Davos, but Davos has an answer for their Brexit entreaties: meh.

The Global Britain and "GREAT Britain" campaign push got off to a bad start when Liam Fox and his Department for International Trade tried to shop around the idea of Great Britain themed events. They got a clear "no" from one of the most visible companies here in Davos, M&G Investments, when they pitched the idea of a partnership. M&G has massive EU-based business. Dow Jones eventually took the bait and is doing an event with Fox.

Philip Souta, representing law and lobbying firm Clifford Chance, looks at the Brexit issue with dread: "Because it's a black hole that sucks up the whole [U.K.] government." Souta is convinced that the Brexit talks are not symmetrical, meaning the U.K. is doomed to a middling to bad outcome.
