Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We live in the post-truth world now, where the corporate media are happy to boost the signal of rabble rousing right wing politicians because it suits the agenda of the corporate owners.

Boris Johnston has already learned that policy consequences are irrelevant to his career : He has been a serial disaster in every political post he's held, wastng hundreds of millions of pounds on vanity projects that were simply never going to work.

Yet each and every one has boosted his presence in the media. Even yesterday he made an inflammatory and overtly racist speech that, in previous years, would have ensured his political oblivion. Now, it simply projects him onto the front pages, the only bad news is no news now.

Boris made his career writing lies about the EU in the Telegraph and they have realised there are no downsides to printing lies about the EU now. The onlypeople who care are Remainers and we no longer matter in any way whatsoever. A 52% mandate for a Constutional change that will weaken this country for generations means the right wing no longer have to care; on 30th March 2019 they ca do what they like and nobody can stop them.
