Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm more and more convinced that the primary aim of the LDs has always been to keep Labour out of power. They'll use any pretext to help that, and Brexit is an exceedingly effective one.

Remain on FB is currently being carpet-bombed by "Labour is a Brexit Party" posts, which suggests a handy false equivalence between Labour's nuanced - and probably unachievable, certainly without a PV - Brexit goals, and Tory/TBP Fuck You No Deal.

And it's working. Farage is set to walk it, and of course that puts No Deal back on the table.

It's hard to work out which LDs are paid trolls and which are just a bit stupid and gullible, but fanatically zealous in their self-harming pursuit of a Remain result that will make No Deal more likely.

Of course I could be wrong about all of this, but I'm really not seeing how "The Remain Party" coming a distant second to "The Brexit Party" helps Remain in any way.
