Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The blame game will start to be important when Brexit starts to have an impact on British households. On the street, it won't matter who is at fault; the issue will be the foreigners still wandering around in England.

My guess is that racism and xenophobia will explode. "We voted for Brexit to get the Polish plumbers out of here, and Johnson brought us Brexit. Why are the plumbers still here???" A few high-profile cases of violence could trigger an exodus by EU citizens who are even more obviously not wanted.

November will be interesting.

Given how full of crap Brexiteers are, you'd think they'd want as many plumbers as possible.  Oh dear, I just used "Brixiteers" and "think" in the same sentence.
