    She's probably right. I should imagine that there are some continuity blocists who perceive the EU as an entirely benign organisation, devoid of doctrine or ideology, that has 'kept the peace' in Europe for the past 75 years, and is devoted only to the paths of true democracy, love, harmony and workers rights. I suspect I wouldn't be too wide of the mark either.

    No more than Mme Bermann seems to have unbounded affection for Britain.

    But we are foundering under the weight of racist know-nothings who have stuffed the country. As Barren Colin says, we are just like the Titanic heading for the iceberg, unsinkable.

    With such a high percentage of rejoiner quotes coming from the Guardian it is perhaps a little unfair to slag off the BBC.

    Wait till the various FCO/ Cabinet Office memoirs are published. The BBC fly on the wall documentary about the Ministry was enough while Johnson was the incumbent. It reminded me of his and his mistress’s dog Dyllin. Civil servants following behind, picking up his diplomatic mess after him, everywhere he went.

    Just teething troubles/ EU intransigence. We could all do with cutting back a bit if we’re honest...mustn’t grumble, our grandparents had it worse during the war™.

    Mme Bermann made no comment on Napoleon's performance, the French economy or their vaccine jab rate. I hear Napoleon is now of the opinion that AZ vaccine is ok?

    Yes, I was waiting for the old Gruaniad to report that, but at least the BBC succumbed. Life is full of surprises, one or two even pleasant ones.

    I’m unclear why there’s the indignant response to the former French Ambassador’s appraisal of Johnson’s character and conduct in office. It’s not even as harsh as opinions expressed by his own former party colleagues including at least one former leader of the party. Then of course there’s the current US President and his team- better not contradict their unflattering opinion of Johnson.

    Was it just me who saw this? Arch leaver acknowledges the inconvenient truth?

    Please don't use my words out of their context. The context is important.

    Only time you've made sense on the thread. Don't backslide now.

    Sue Pertwee-Tyr Well, I can dream, can’t I?

    I saw it, and thought it rather in keeping with his wider stance, so not worth singling out for comment. Perhaps uniquely among leavers on here, EV has always acknowledged both sides of the argument. Unlike Colin, or his fellow travellers on here, EV's position has always felt amenable to polite and rational discussion, rather than just, in effect, bellowing rhetoric at each other. For him to acknowledge that things aren't turning out as he'd hoped seems to me to be in character, and not inconsistent. He had clearly hoped that Brexit could and would be better managed. Where we differ, rather fundamentally, is in how we apportion the blame for this.
