Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why? You could imagine a world in which a country sat down, had a sensible debate, formulated a plan, decided what outcome they wanted and initiated the A50 process to leave the EU perfectly sensibly.

I'm agog at the idea that the current UK clusterfuck would somehow act as an example to be followed by other countries or leaders. It's going to eat two, maybe three PMs, multiple ministers, damage the economy in the medium to long term,  destroy parties and lead to more bloodshed anyway you cut it, even if A50 is withdrawn, for precisely zero benefits from the EU.

If it was a negotiating tactic it was a spectacularly bad one.

It's a cautionary tale.
