Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As long as nobody even makes suggestions to all these questions, these ideas for a "common negotiating position" towards Russia are just pointless blather, bluster and, more to the point, a distraction.

Could the sudden desire for European cooperation be rooted in a desire to get in on some of those long-term contracts that other people have signed with Russia - only without having to actually speak with the Russians? That would be a show of uncommonly good sense, because it doesn't sound like the British are very good at speaking with Russia...
