EU Leaders Discussing Brexit Without Britain, Again

merkel hollande

Leaders of every EU member state bar Britain will meet in Bratislava in mid-September to “continue a political reflection” post-Brexit. The event, which was scheduled after the last meeting in Brussels, is ostensibly for the leaders to debate “further reforms in line with our strategic agenda”. This will almost certainly include extensive discussions around Brexit. Frustratingly both Merkel and Juncker don’t want to engage the UK in any of these negotiations until Article 50 is triggered, that the meeting is happening in the first place should be an encouraging sign to Brexiteers worried about a betrayal. Presumably MI6 will be earning the taxpayers’ shilling and the Foreign Office will still be fully aware of the EU’s strategy…

Quote of the Day

Emmanuel Macron comes over all euro-sceptic…

“We ended the day on what we can call a failure. It’s a very bad image we are giving of the Council and Europe, no one can be satisfied with what happened over so many hours. Our credibility is profoundly tainted with these meetings that are too long and lead to nothing, we give an image of Europe that isn’t serious. We cannot hold talks with world leaders, in an ever more violent world, and be a club that meets at 28 without ever deciding anything.”
