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

independent.ie | BREAKING: New Brexit offer on table as EU presents Britain with unilateral way out of the backstop

In an unusual change of approach, the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has this evening tweeted details [!] of the EU's latest bid to end the impasse.
o. wait
Mr Barnier said the EU has committed to giving the UK an option of exiting the Single Customs Territory unilaterally, "while the other elements of the backstop must be maintained to avoid a hard border"
"We were and remain happy to apply the backstop to Northern Ireland only if they want to go back to that," he said.
"No-deal" BREXIT + NI backstop! A "Special Customs Union"!!

(Frank, must be so proud)
