Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"It's hard to blame the EU"

The Brexiteers don't mind hard work. In fact, the spin is already in. The UK has made "common-sense" suggestions (the backstop is dead, anyone can see that) that the EU refuses to recognize and will not negotiate on.

Agreed, when the shit hits the fan there'll be nowhere to run to beyond blaming the Soviet EU bloc.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions

Seems to me the EU would ignore any blame directed in its direction, and turn aside to focus on EU problems. What do they care about blame? It's just an internal English political scoring point.
