Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is a bit like hitting a rhinoceros with a handbag. Brexit is all about putting facts on the ground and worry about legalities later - maybe years later. If the EU isn't to become a laughing stock - and undermine its own legal order - decisive political action needs to be taken, like excluding the UK from WTO tariffs and quotas and imposing broader tariffs and controls as sanctions. Given that the WTO doesn't currently have a Director General or a functioning dispute resolution process (thanks to Trump failing to nominate judges) it could also be years before that dispute is resolved.
