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

Meanwhile the British government is preparing for martial law: SkyNews: Brexit planners could use martial law against civil disobedience:

Brexit planners are examining the possibility of martial law in Britain in the event of a "no-deal" Brexit, it has emerged.

Whitehall officials are looking at how to use powers available under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 to stop civil disobedience after the UK leaves the EU.

According to a report in The Sunday Times, the legislation gives ministers the power to impose curfews, travel bans, confiscate property and deploy the armed forces.

A source told the newspaper: "The over-riding theme in all the no-deal planning is civil disobedience and the fear that it will lead to death in the event of food and medical shortages."

I guess Brexit means dictatorship then.
