Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
EU members want clarity in call to refrain from political power play.

PM May promised to be flexible in forthcoming plan B. Today she comes with more of the same.

EU wants PM May to alter her red lines.

Labour leader Corbyn wants PM May to drop no-deal option and to alter her red lines. Interesting for the Prime Minister to start her statement with an attack on the opposition leader Corbyn. Once again a show of Tory hate for the Labour leader.

IMO narrows PM May her choice to a no-deal or the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement with an adjustment to the backstop clause to favor Tory hard Brexiteers and the DUP unionists. Once more walking blind-folded into a dead end street. Nothing surprises me anymore.

A second referendum will not happen. The Labour leader strives for a soft Brexit in a Single Market.

See Independent.ie headlines today. It's a hoot.
Forget "Polish Intelligence" on borders.
"Plan B" is re-writing the GFA to "guarantee" open border ... on or before 29 Mar?

Pull the other one, laddie!

Hear the "freer hand" clapping with the "invisible hand"?

I'm of the mind, "exasperation" is the better fit, all around, ahh ceteris paribus and wutnot.

Question: How would you comment on the media reports suggesting that it was Abigail McCourt, 16, who was the first to help Sergei and Yulia Skripal after they were poisoned?
