Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem with a no-deal Brexit, if it turns out to be a disaster as is likely, is that Britons will see EU "intransigence" as the cause of their misfortune. And the EU will have to tread lightly in the event of new Scottish independence or Irish unification referendums, because then it will be accused of plotting to divide the UK and take parts of it.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
