Quoted @AlbertoNardelli

Too easy (and incorrect) to say "EU" failing on North Macedonia starting membership talks. Impasse caused by: - France - Netherlands - Denmark - And paralysis in Berlin Govts should take responsibility for positions (& consequences of these) instead of hiding behind "Brussels"

Why seeing that as an “impasse”? Judgment on fulfilling all conditions as Copenhagen criteria. Enlargement is NOT a foreign policy tool!

This is my favorite. Most Conservatives would rather let Scotland and Northern Ireland leave the UK than cancel Brexit. https://twitter.com/YouGov/status/1140885366360203264 …

Incredible!?

Congratulations Philippe!

This is a very revealing front page. Why would the Telegraph be going negative on the guy in last place? It’s a mystery, right enough.

Yes, wonder why paper employing @BorisJohnson running this today. 1) is spying for your country supposed to be a bad thing 2) isn’t the first rule of spy club that you don’t talk about it? Isn’t “mystery” part of the whole spy thing?

Quoted @PoulletFrancois

I agree with your analysis. Other issues that should be looked at: can the EU still legally agree a WA under art 50 after a crash-out brexit? If not, then art 218 comes into play. Would a treaty under art 218 replicating the WA automatically become a mixed treaty? Or not?

Mixed treaties not legally automatically needed on all domaines, if several separate agreements negotiated. But politically the most probable is that at least the Council (pushed by national Parliaments of the 27) will prefer 1 or maybe 2) mixed (and multidisciplinary ) treaties.

Quoted @trefeca

@piris_jc made it pretty clear in a post early today that authority to make agreements under Art. 50 expires, logically enough, at the end of the Art. 50 period (plus extension[s]). So then we are into Art. 218, with its own procedures & need for a new mandate, so nothing quick.

Exactly, either a new mandate covering all kind of relations U.K./EU (association agreement ?), or several mandates for cooperation in different matters, trade, security and défense, judicial, police and internal security, other domaines of cooperation.

My latest podcast: chatting to @piris_jc about the true meaning of a #nodealbrexit and the appetite of the EU27 to accommodate the UK with a new prime minister https://esharp.eu/podcasts/the-true-meaning-of-a-no-deal-brexit … @esharpmag

In this podcast with @AdamsonPaul @piris_jc warns against growing fatigue in BRU with #Brexit process & sheds light on what it means to trade under #WTO rules. You will find it handy as contenders for the Tory leadership compete over who does better at misleading the public.

Thanks for the shout-out @DavidHenigUK. Chances of finalising the EU-Mercosur deal are higher than ever. Technical negotiations will resume this week with potential for political agreement by end of month. Stay tuned! https://twitter.com/DavidHenigUK/status/1140525452446113794 …

Trying not to get overly excited but given how protracted + contentious the negs have been with South America (esp on beef), this would be a huge boost for EU + UK trade generally

Quoted @pmdfoster

EXC: If @BorisJohnson wants to make good on his threat to withhold £39bn #Brexit bill he will need to over-turn existing legal advice from AG Geoffrey Cox - who supports him. Could be awkward. 1/Thread

And then MrJohnson would have to confront an EU refusing to negotiate any deal with him. This shows that he will not do that. Just pretending because he thinks that will help him being elected.

What about a "sunset clause"? For @piris_jc , the EU's top lawyer for two decades: "You cannot have a time limit. You cannot ignore the GFA and the risks involved if controls at the Irish border were re-established just because a certain period of time would have elapsed."

Firstly their broad views on the #ToryLeadershipContest 
@ph_lamberts “I see many people in denial of reality.”

@AgataGostynska: “I think many of the contenders are actually delusional about what they can achieve. I think the reality will come to bite them soon.”

And @piris_jc?

Quoted @piris_jc

Art 50 para 2 cannot be read without para 3. Two years after triggering art 50 procedure, or later if agreement on a prorogation of that delay, if no WA in force, the EU Treaties cease to apply to U.K. which becomes a third State vis-à-vis EU. Then, if U.K. and EU negotiate,... https://twitter.com/evanderstap/status/1140368477070548993 …

This is the key point ignored by all the Tory candidates bar @RoryStewartUK: if there is no withdrawal agreement in force, then the EU treaties cease to apply to UK. We are literally in no man’s land, with no leverage #Brexit #ToryLeadershipContest

Purely as an informed legal layperson that explanation by @piris_jc makes total sense to me and in line with with all that I've learnt about the Art50 procedure. Let's hope it becomes in future a treaty dead letter after EU's Brexit experience!!
