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

What happened to Brexit? There is not agreement to speak of, and probably no longer enough time for a ratification ahead of the 29th of March. And yet, the subject has largely disappeared from the British media. Is it denial or resignation?

What do you mean, disappeared? From today's front page in The Independent (Young people to lose up to £108,000 in earnings if there is a no-deal Brexit, new research warns), The Guardian (Difference between soft Brexit and no deal worth £30bn - analysis) or The Torygraph (Argentina will exploit a no-deal Brexit to 'enhance' its claims to Falklands, says its foreign minister - mercifully behind a paywall).

Brexit has been getting saturation coverage in the media, although I am told it isn't mentioned in polite society any more. It's no longer a case of "don't mention the war" in the presence of Germans, and more a case of "don't mention Brexit" to people you don't know well. Too many friends and family have fallen out over it.

I had no problem mentioning it to the owner of the B&B I stayed at in Scotland this summer. Of course, the fact that he had a flagpole with a saltire flying on it gave me a pretty good idea of his politics....
