Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hmm, tricky question. Obviously no. Trump doesnt have Brexit as an albatross around his neck. He has a more solid footing -a second term coming?- which is terrifying. The US with a rotten head can do much more damage than the smaller UK (sorry...).

On the other hand, worse means worse, not better. But if there is to be a chance to get rid of Brexitism then it needs to be played to the end. The risk is it's coming down to no-deal or no-Brexit.

The same constraints that befell May are here for Johnson. Can he really sell an unloved deal with his 'charming personality' by pulling enough people from the Tory soft or remain camp, from Labour even? While keeping the Faragists at bay? Can he go for revoke as Matthew Perry suggests? That would be the ultimate 'betrayal' leading to chaotic psychosis. Very unlikely but I'm happy to be surprised.

Then no-deal which has bigger chances than deal. Also unloved by parliament. It's all coming down to an election. Toss the dice some more. Does that make any sense?

Schengen is toast!
