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

no free movement of persons

no customs union

no difference of status and treatment between N. Ireland and rest of UK

no prevalence of EU law, past or future


we refuse to put ham, cheese, tomatoes and olives on your pizza in view of your order: "hold the ham, cheese, tomatoes and olives".

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

  • commercial credit

BorderIrish ("backstop") is a bit of a spanner, as it has appeared --and disappeared as quickly-- to preclude sovereignty of UK gov and harmonious union of sundry subjects of the one Crown.

Did anyone recall poor BorderIrish in debate of confidence in Mme May today?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
