    The Trump Johnson 1-2 combo to their face has them reeling. Small countries like Hungary, Austria, and Poland trying to go their own way are easily brought into line if the biggies fall. If UK economy outshines the Continent, will others get restless? Trump gets re-elected, Paris Accord is dead and the windfall profits expected from US taxpayers with it. Do they retrench and continue to try to blind the young and soldier on in their long march or go to a plan B and what would that look like?

    Maybe the EU will try to wage some kind of an economic or political war on us?

    Not really sure what they could do.
