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

Every reaction they had to that initial story over the weekend only served to confirm that the report existed and had been reported faithfully.

The thing is that people's willingness to believe the promises of the brexiteers has been eroded. I admit I had no faith to start with, but I'm talking about the faithful now. If you start losing the Times, which has been quite evident judging by the fact that they even published it, then you're already eating into the brexit voting classes.

They may not be the right wing ultras at the Mail or the ERG fanatics at the Telegraph, but the Timess probably represents the majority sentiment of those who voted Leave. They were willing to go along with almost all of it, even anticipating a slight dip in fortunes in the expectation of long term improvement, as long as it wasn't going to be catastrophic. But now the evidence is rolling in that the brexiteers are in over their heads, constantly being sideswiped by issues such as Ulster that are both as unexpected as they are intractable.

It. Is. Going. To. Be. A . Disaster. And if the Times starts saying it with any conviction, then that pro-brexit polling is gonna melt away in the summer heat with a very cold winter coming.

keep to the Fen Causeway
