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

My wishes for the new year come early - I'll be largely offline starting Monday morning, 2018's final day. This year has kept me occupied predominantly with family care and job responsibilities - no time for blogging, or much online activity whatsoever - though I've tried my best to pop up here to freshen threads or do some housekeeping whenever the opportunity arose. Thanks to the remaining gnomes and everyone else here to keep pitching in and keep things flowing - if there's any good that Brexit brings, it must be the consistency of Frank's excellent blogging and the community-input into Brexit diaries...

Speaking of exits, I do have one housekeeping announcement to make for 2019: coming April, I have an extended breakaway of three months in the offing and these will be spent primarily offline. So this gnome will doff his has during these months and move underground. If anyone is interested or keen enough in supporting and upholding the ET household during that period, please be so kind to leave a brief response - it'd be much appreciated!

Onwards with the interesting times - the year 2019 awaits... Best to all!
