Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Rafael Behr in the Guardian :

If May flunks another meaningful vote, the extension gets shorter - 12 April is the new cliff-edge that comes into view. That date marks the point at which Britain would have to start organising European parliament elections, should it want another even longer extension. A national change of heart on the whole Brexit business would still be welcome in Brussels but it is not expected, and the priority is to escort a troublesome ex-member off the premises with a minimum of disruption before those MEP ballots get under way.

Does May like this plan? It doesn't matter. She wasn't in the room where it happened. The summit conclusions were handed down to the petitioning nation as it paced around an antechamber. This is the power relationship between a "third country" and the EU. Britain had better get used to it.



I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
