Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Rich Tories and the rich men they represent. Those who want unregulated fuck-you capitalism aboard a floating casino/tax haven. Who've spent years poisoning the minds of the ill-informed with a continuous media onslaught on EU regulation couched as Brussels' dictatorship.

If the Tory party has a soul, which I doubt, there is surely a battle going on within it between these (and their very considerable influence) and the stodgier representatives of business-as-usual who fear the destruction and spoliation to come.

The frightening thing is that business-as-usual, in the absence of a champion, can only hope that May will serve their cause with a fudgy soft Brexit. I'm not sure she's dedicated to a crash-out. I doubt she has the consistency of mind for that, though you may be right she'd go there just out of spite.

I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
