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

It's quite clear that they don't understand the consequences of their actions in any time frame: it was being reported yesterday that May and her circle were surprised to find that a customs union with the EU would require adherence to assorted EU standards to avoid a race-to-the-bottom, something which would have been entirely obvious to pretty much anyone hanging around ET.
