Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The normality of being one country among 28 is not possible.

Let alone one nation among 193 in the UN, and only fifth in economic size. Quite the comedown from the glory days pre-WW I. Of course most could ignore this decline until the '50s, when Great Britain had to shed her colonial glory.

Now England's challenge is preventing a run-amok elite from taking the whole nation even further down in a failed attempt to retain their class dominance.
