Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
I make no such presumption for any parliament, although most, where the government has a stable majority, will probably endorse a deal if Barnier sticks to their red lines and it is agreed by the Commission and a majority of the Council on their behalf.

Macron way make a show of refusing to ratify if the fishing deal is not to his satisfaction, and Ireland may require a referendum, but for me the greatest risk of non-ratification comes from the UK, if the ERG don't get the pure Brexit they have insisted should be pursued.

Ireland may require a referendum

There's exactly 2 weeks left.  No agreement has been hammered out.  Brits are making noises that talks will have to go on until after Christmas.

And Ireland may have to have a referendum?

I submit: the time; it has run out.

I'm finding it hard to imagine a 2020 panto which doesn't end with the entire cast dead and hordes of zombies trying to eat the brains of the audience.

But - I don't know - maybe that's just me.
