‘The Best Deal Possible’

at

Tánaiste Simon Coveney meeting with Michel Barnier this morning

Tony Connelly, of RTÉ, reports:

The EU’s chief negotiator has said the Withdrawal Agreement, including the Irish backstop, was “the best deal possible” for the UK in the Brexit negotiations.

In an interview with RTÉ News, Mr Barnier dismissed reports of a bilateral arrangement between the UK and Ireland, saying the EU negotiated as one team.

Mr Barnier said the focus was now on the future relationship and the Political Declaration which sketches that relationship.

He said the EU was prepared to work again on the declaration to make it more “ambitious”.

    It’s Plan B day at Westminster, but you wouldn’t wash your mimsy-tushkin with what Theresa May will announce in a couple of hours. B day, bidet, get it?

    I’m pretty certain we will see an outbreak of violence in the House of Commons before 29 March, probably jostling or shoving but I wouldn’t put it past them to see them kicking the crap out of each other; this polite pantomime in that rarefied chamber must soon need to confront the reality of some decision, and one extreme or the other is going to be very disappointed.
