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

From the start of this silliness the Leavers have been totally & completely wrong about the actual state-of-play.  The Leavers thought they could state their terms, stick to them, and the EU would ultimately agree.  This, in part, stems from the fact Brits never fully understood the fundamental and underlying political nature of the EU.  For the Brits it was always about making money.  Which is why the Leavers keep harping about things economic and why they think the EU will cave.

Fundamentally, Anglo-Americans are grotesquely ignorant of how the rest of the world ticks but don't know they are grotesquely ignorant.
