Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The possibility of unilateral Brexit revocation makes it imperative that the UK prepare to hold EU elections if they remain a member past April 12 (for domestic logistical reasons) and actually hold them if they remain a member past May 22.

The EU is willing to go out of its way to avoid a no-deal Brexit but they won't allow the UK political crisis to infect their institutions. Unfortunately I can't find the quote, but a UK paper quoted an EU diplomat to that effect.

Thinking of this as the EU exacting a price for a concession is the Brexiter confrontational frame. The EU has negotiated like an unfeeling technocratic machine.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
