Brexit didn't play in this election. Everybody is (at least emotionally) indifferent though maybe they shouldn't be.

Should Jamaica come to pass then we have the following: FDP (neo)liberal they don't have a problem with FoM (actually nobody has). Greens are somewhat "Europe First". CDU/CSU will find it difficult to make concessions in the 2nd phase of negotiations (if they are even inclined to) and why should they? UK is still undecided and legal/practical realities are forcing their position into the EU's vice.

However, when it comes to the overall direction/reform of the EU we have internal conflict potential. Greens are open to financial integration. CDU/CSU/FDO are not. Especially the FDP; they dont even want a banking union. It's been said that the FDP would be Macron's nightmare. Well, here they are. Expect stagnation on that front - as always.

Schengen is toast!
