domani i nostri questuanti vanno a chiedere l'elemosina a bruxelles
in genere bruxelles è prodiga di brioches fresche, ma sono rimaste quelle secche e scadute
e non è detto che siano commestibili così oltre scadenza

1/3) A note on the European elections #EuElection2019

The #EuropeanParliament does not have a government.

This means that the system does not operate like a national parliament.

To be a successful parliamentarian means having to work the committees.
2/3) Successful committee work rewards parliamentarians who can build consensus.

Those who are nuanced, enjoy the detail, read research, and engage in compromise are winners in this system.

Conflictual ideologues, flag wavers, and oppositional politics are not rewarded.
3/3) Therefore if you want your vote to have the most impact, vote for a parliamentarian who is best suited to doing committee work.

This might sound boring. But that's how the EU works.

Thread:

I doubt the EU-27 will accept the PM’s new 22 May date for the extension of #Article50 #Brexit deadline for at least four reasons:
- They’ve been stung before by #TheresaMay saying she needs “just X weeks”, with that then turning out to be longer
- They know she needs time for the legislation, even if #MV4 gets through #Commons and that there will still be internal opposition to it at that stage

Today, @CER_EU publishes my piece on #Brexit and #JHA. I have been looking at this for 1,5 years so I hope I did not make too many mistakes (links to piece - cer.eu/publications/a… and opens thread)
At the outset of the #Brexit process, most people assumed that a deal on #police and #judicial co-operation was easier to get than one on #trade. Time has shown this is not the case. Ongoing co-op on #JHA is one of the few items yet to be agreed on #withdrawal deal. Why?
Well, because the #EU and #UK's opening positions in the #negotiation are incompatible: Britain wants a #bespoke agreement with the EU, a la #Schengen, but is not willing to accept #ECJ or #EUCharter. EU wants to replicate existing models. What to do?
