Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
The negotiations on the Withdrawal Agreement took near on three years and were completed, the agreement drawn up and presented to the UK Parliament, that three times rejected it.

If the process is currently stalled, it's hardly the EU's fault.

Ah yes, but De Pfeffle isn't going to be talking to some jumped up bureaucrats in Brussels. His negotiating will be done with his peers - Trump, Merkel, Macron - perhaps at a conference similar to that at Yalta after the war - Churchill, Stalin, Roosevelt - where the spoils of Brexit will be divided, and the Irish will be so much collateral damage...

Am I wrong that this comment is somewhat tongue-in-cheek?

if he is, then comedy revelas a definite truth to the brexiteers mindset. Leavers have noted repeatedly that the Tories have tried to divide and rule the EU by going over the head of the Commission and speaking directly to the leaders of EU countries.

It's not worked yet, but they keep banging their head on the same wall

Well how else can De Pfeffle emulate his idol Churchill...

Amazing idea, strictly neutral territory on the frontier between the EU/NATO and the democratic new republic of Russia 😣

Can resolve some local issues of piracy and prisoner exchange while the 3-some are at it. Sochi would be a bit contentious ...

Yalta beach

I'm certain the white man in his house in Washington DC would be jealous of Boris. Is there a golf course or was the last conference before the Eisenhower/Nixon ticket?

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.

Trump, Merkel, Macron dividing up the spoils at Yalta is one thing, but I don't see why they would invite de Pfeffel??
