No one can blame you for trying to change the subject to wishful thinking old boy, but you'll probably admit that no matter how often EU members participate in slap and tickle fights, they will put them aside to poke at whatever remains of the UK whenever an opportunity arises:

Brexit has served as a cautionary tale to other countries that had been considering leaving the EU as well and given it more solidarity. Possible next stop: Corbyn's 1930's land of surly proles.

There's so much political opportunity in Europe for Blighty just now - a target rich environment, as they say - it's mortifying for us to be out of it.

Even Dad's Army and the Bolsheviks trying to shoot 'em up over there couldn't miss something tasty.

45 years Blighty's waited for some free flowing action to swing it our way. Mrs T managed a bit by thrusting the single market and four freedoms down their throats - plus a handbagging to get the budget rebate.

But then when some real action kicks off we do a runner just before the targets pop-up.

Bloody frustrating.

I mean, just now if we about faced our retreat and returned to the field of glory saying, "How about we shake hands on Dave Cam's deal - bit of slow down on immigration to keep the Country-Bumpkins happy, we keep the rebate, keep the no Euro clause - they'd leap for joy.

Pound would go though the roof, GDP as well, inflation sink like a stone, and 2 1/2 years of pent-up investment would arrive on Monday morning.

Then we stick the knife into the Jerries by backing France's bid to curtail Nord Stream 2 along with the Nordics, Baltics, and Ost Blockers. We back the Club Medders stance on the Euro to help them sink their teeth into the Jerry reserves through Target2. Then we stick the knife into the Froggies and nick the head honcho role in the EU army with the support of the Jerries (they won't want the Froggies in charge and have too much war guilt to do it themselves) and we ease all the wedge for it out of Brussels.

What's not to like?
