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

Anyone else enjoy BBC World's 'Dateline London' (14.30 GMT Saturdays)?
It's a half hour political talk show with 4 guest journalists from different countries.
Today's was especially animated.

"May is stubbornly in pursuit of the impossible"

Best part: a conjecture shared by two journos that May's secret Machiavellian plan is a second referendum, and she's the butler with the candlestick!
Hilarity ensued, but there was an aha moment as well. It fit so perfectly, where better to put your Remainer Trojan Horse than at 10 Downing St. at the head of an imploding party, riven by its own unresolved contradictions if your real desire is to Remain?
Oscar material, if true.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
