Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Does Boris really believe "they need us more than we need them"?

Apparently so.

There simply is no rational explanation for this strategy beyond a belief the EU will simply lie down and die.

Well, yes.
A high stakes game of chicken, just like that famous cliff jumping car scene in Rebel Without a Cause.

The more apt analogy is "human shield", or hostage scenario.

Tory gov is not alone in the vehicle as it were and indifference to the well being of others has been expressed by observers to no avail. Why they still expect a measure of sympathy for adverse consequences to temper Tory gov "strategy" is a bit of mystery to me.

Then again, I'm not steeped in christian dogma.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
