Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Brussels will break its own laws if it refuses to compromise on Brexit, ministers have warned their European counterparts.

The EU "keeps stalling" and bringing the prospect of no deal ever closer, they say, even though the Lisbon Treaty requires it to do everything it can to find a workable arrangement with Britain.

Senior Whitehall sources said on Sunday that if the UK crashes out of Europe without a deal "we will make it clear whose fault it was".

They point to Article 8 of the treaty, which states that the EU must "develop a special relationship with neighbouring countries, aiming to establish an area of prosperity and good neighbourliness, founded on the values of the Union

Needless to say, the Torygraph forgets to point out that Article 8 has been completely ignored in the case of Russia.....
