  1. Reality bites according to Fabian Zuleeg

    “To have any chance of a successful conclusion of the negotiations, the UK must now address the myths and misconceptions of the EU27’s position. There needs to be a recognition that there will be little give from the other side of the channel. Only if the UK is willing to make significant concessions, is a viable deal possible. Even a transition deal will require the UK to accept the EU27’s conditions. Some in the UK might argue that under those circumstances, no deal is better, even if it imposes economic and political costs. That is a choice. But having the cake and eating it too is not a choice the EU27 will allow.
    The reality of the Brexit deal from the VP of the Europeans. ”
