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

Kabuki theatre

I can't help it, but these last weeks of Downing Street 10 appears to me part of a Kabuki theatre of the Tories with May, Johnson and Davies in the lead roles.

There is no way Michel Barnier and the EU nations will accept the Chequers White Paper as a new start for negotiations. Intent to let the "negotiations" fail and place blame on EU intransigence.

Once the talks have failed, the real Brexiteers will become part of government again, perhaps under a new Tory leader.

That's my take of things that pass. It couldn't be utter stupidity, can it?

I think it's been the plan from day one.

to be honest, it's gotten so bad here that Theresa May whipped (compulsory voting) her party to defeat her own bill in order to appease the brexiteers.

Other votes were only won with the collusion of pro-brexit right wing Labour traitor MPs.

The fact nobody in the Tories has clue fucking one what is going on has to please the SNP.
