Munchau has lost his mind on Brexit.

The only surprise (for me) in the comments attributed to EU officials, is that they regard the A50 invocation as revocable, even up to the last minute. However if that is what you really want - to persuade the UK to revoke its A50 notification - then you have an incentive to make the Brexit negotiation process as nasty and unproductive as possible. Why make it easy for the UK to leave, if you really want them to stay?

Why is is this a surprise for anyone? Brexit is a disaster for the European project, the negotiations are lose-lose damage limitation, optimum outcome is the whole thing being dumped.
