Taoiseach Leo Varadar says a bare bones Canada-type FTA between EU and UK would "take longer to negotiate."
"The quickest deal that we can negotiate is one that’s very similar to our current relationship, the more the future relationship diverges from the status quo the longer it’s going to take.
"If PM Johnson wants it done quickly I think it’s in his interests to negotiate a very close relationship."

The new coalition party "#Ethiopian Prosperity Party" (#EPP), "የኢትዮጵያ የብልፅግና ፓርቲ" (#ኢብፓ) formed by PM #Abiy raises a lot of questions than answers about Abiy's ability to lead.

See below list of sensible questions that are worth digesting. 1/7
1) #Abiy has been, and still is, doing anything he wants under the #EPRDF umbrella. So, why form a new party now considering the upcoming election is just round the corner? Surely, he cannot say that #EPP has all the logistics in place to be a competitive democratic party. 2/7
2) Is it really #Abiy's own decision/choice to form #EPP or there are lobbyists influencing in the background? If the latter, who are they & what are they after?

3) What is going to happen with #TPLF e.g. is Abiy going to now have different means & power to challenge TPLF? 3/7

#1. Lineup assembly is DFS 1.0. Lineup voting is DFS 2.0.

#2. In the case of a tie for a ranked paid position, only the prize for THAT spot will be split amongst the winners.

The spots below will NOT be consumed to compensate for the number of tied winners.

#3. Lineup sellers exist for a reason (see #1 above). If you take away the reason, you remove the demand for these sellers trying to make a quick buck.

Make it easy for casual fans to engage with DFS - and they won't try buying lineups.

#Brexit continues to dominate UK debate and indeed our own coverage. But what about #EU risks in 2019? Thread for us EU watchers: @CER_Grant @JeremyCliffe @MMQWalker @MehreenKhn @pmdfoster @aqbyrne @PedderSophie @tom_nuttall @clichfield1 @FSanti_ @BBCkatyaadler
1/ % of May’s deal passing are rising. DUP/Eurosceptics sounding more conciliatory; big mood change yesterday. But still v long way to go. ERG suspect May will hide behind Commons on A50 extension. Peace moves could be overtaken by events (backbench amendments)
2/ EU’s concern with Brexit is growing; no longer simple occupation of TF50, WPA50, COREPER and Sherpas; many more voices now involved as clock runs down to no-deal. But #Brexit still not biggest concern for EU—yet. So what is?
