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

Jeremy Hunt's comments are particularly unfortunate for the British cause. If the UK has support in the EU27, it is mostly in Ireland and eastern European members who joined the EU at least partly as a means of moving away from Russian hegemony. These, often far right movements, have seen the UK as a proxy for the USA and a bulwark against Russia. It is no accident that many of the more right wing parties in Eastern Europe are allied with the Tories in the European Parliament. For the UK Tories to now denigrate their continued membership of the EU as tantamount to appeasement of of a Soviet style EU is about as insulting as you can get. Expect the negotiating climate to turn particularly frosty in Brussels...
