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

I suspect that the brexiters whole plan is about escaping the eurosphere and swapping it for the anglosphere because they hate taking "rules" from johnny foreigner; the sort of people they used to own (in Ireland), rescue (France) or beat in wars (germany). In other words, being a member of the EU is a constant humiliation by being submissive to people brexiters feel they should more naturally be ruling.

They feel more comfortable with the anglosphere which, while although it will mean being rule takers from the USA, they as a class have been acclimated to such things since WWII and the ongoing membership of NATO. Being told what to do by Washington is the natural order of things. And, from the consverative brexiter view their especially parasitic, rentier capitalism is most acceptable to people whose entire wealth has been built of parasitism and ent-seeking.

And they only speak english, which means they can't be plotting behind your back in dastardly tongues
