Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
The EU 27 leaders have actually been playing this quite smart: staying united, acting schtum and letting the UK body politic tear itself apart all on its own

Sometimes the path of least resistance is not the worst one to take. Imagine the EU27 had to find a more nuanced common position than no talks before official start.

This should have been all about the UK dividing and conquering 27 EU leaders with disparate interests.  We'll see how things change as talks progress - or don't - but so far all the recriminations are on the UK side.
