Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I witness no perspective for a resolution from the people occupying seats in the House of Commons, nor by the Tory leadership and #10 Downing Street. Most discussion and debates here @home are about the process and why the arrogance by these people to prefer infighting than to work towards a tangible goal.

The Tory leadership has mismanaged the UK membership of the EU for many years. Failed negotiations on the preference of the British in Brussels, the option of the referendum by David Cameron, the call by Theresa May for new elections to "increase" Conservative majority and her position to negotiate a good deal with Europe. She failed on all accounts and got the DUP as a breaker of any viable deal as a first result. It became a non-starter with the pure arrogance to place further Tory party red lines.

Am still surprised, as you are, for an acceptable deal for all 28 parties laid down for the vote before Parliament. Not uncommon, the British are in no hurry, they cue in line for each to take a stab at proposals for Brussels "to eat cake".

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
