This analysis, by my former boss @CER_Grant, is sound as far as it goes...but in my view omits a few very important factors...1/ of a thread on aspects Charles couldn't possibly fit into a short op-ed (and I try not make too long a thread out of it :-).
2/ As many Irish and other EU commentators have long noted, Charles - who is rightly widely read and respected across the EU - seems to have long suggested that the other EU26 may not back Ireland in a final treaty crunch. In a straight geo-politics game he might be right, but...
3/...this has annoyed a few people because it goes to the heart of what the EU is, especially for Ireland. If the EU does not back Ireland on such an existential question - and yes folks, #Brexit is existential - then why should Ireland stay in the EU? Or any other small member?
