Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think there is also a second side to this: Usually you'd expect the centrist media to switch immediately from this referendum is of the utmost importance, read all about it in these pages, to well it was advisory and doesn't mean much. Sure, the right wing money boys want to see the country burn and loot the corpse, but the ruling class faction broadly collected behind the Blairites want buisness as usual. So why did they sit on their hands here? The main story they were pushing at the time was that Corbyn lost the referendum and had to go. Can't simultaneously argue that it didn't mean anything.
