Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Frank: Brexiteers like to talk about "our friends in Europe" as if their actions were without consequence.

Swedish foreign minister: I `cannot forgive' UK for Brexit

Margot Wallström, Sweden's foreign minister and a former European Commission vice president, lashed out today at Britain's political class over its handling of the country's EU exit.

"I cannot forgive them for this," Wallström said of Brexit.

She called Britain's approach to the issue "dangerous" and "badly handled," adding "I just think that they've made such a historical mistake and they've really created a problem for all of us."

Her comments, at a foreign policy conference in Helsinki, reflect a trend of increasingly harsh rhetoric from European politicians about their British counterparts.
