There is an informative and depressing article in the Irish Times suggesting that as Britain has shown what a disaster leaving the EU is, so the right wing anti-Europe headbangers, like Marine Le Pen, have ditched the idea of leaving Europe ( including, remarkably not leaving the Euro, so I’m not sure they have got the message entirely). However it seems Britain has taught Europe a lesson and, in doing that, of course, it will have motivated them to ensure a British exit deal is no more than the minimum.
Well done Johnson. Somebody who, together with George Osborne, will, I fear, have done more to impoverish Britain than anyone else in post war history.
As the article concludes:
Three years after the UK’s referendum, Brexit looks less like a harbinger of the EU’s disintegration than a cautionary tale for the rest of the continent.
It is unfortunate for me, and for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, that I can only agree.
