Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If Brexit has taught us anything it is that 45 years of EU membership creates such a web of mutual obligations and economic integration that one cannot suddenly flick a reverse switch when political sentiment changes. The British fondly imagine they can go back to the status quo ante, but the world has changed rather a lot since 1973. Just as joining was expected to be for ever, I suspect leaving will be for ever as well. I am not one of those optimists who expect the UK to be rejoining some time soon.
