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

If I were advising the EU (and for some reason, they haven't asked me yet), I'd tell them to pass sanction triggers and contingent regulations implementing sanctions.  Basically tell the UK once and for all, "Eff about and find out.  Play stupid games, win stupid prizes."  No point worrying about riling up the Brexit Base.  They're brainwashed beyond any hope, just like the Trumptards here.

Looks like the scientific community has had about enough.

I'm assuming they're heading for the UK or an affiliated location.  No point moving here since we're already worse than the UK.  No surprise given we're run by people of the opinion that "we don't need none o' that pointy-headed larnin' stuff here", i.e. the people I went to school with.

I meant "heading for the EU".  This is what happens when you comment at 0300 due to insomnia.

Yep. Same thing with the customs lines at the airport: if you don't travel outside of the country, those lines are unimportant. Same with cars, you can still drive a 1990 Vauxhall Cavalier and put two fingers up at the foreigners. Same thing with Polish plumbers; only an issue for people who hire plumbers. And nannies. Etc.
