@BBCnews & @SkyNews & the multiple correspondents tasked with reporting/commenting on #Brexit you have a tendency to frame & report on optics not substance. Short thread on why yesterday was a very bad day for #UK @BrigidLaffan
1. GAC ministerial meeting met in Brussels yesterday. UK left an empty chair. Message-we won’t waste our resources on what concerns you even though it was a discussion about ‘rule of law’. Not smart when PM is going to Lux to meet #Juncker. @BrigidLaffan
2. Commission President Juncker & @MichelBarnier were cordial but clear in the post meeting statement. It is U.K’s ‘responsability’ to come forward with ‘legally operational solutions’. Despite the spin there are no such solutions on the table. @BrigidLaffan

#Juncker announces extra summit on #Brexit extension next week: "I assume that we will not be able to reach a decision this week [at #EUCO] but that we will have to meet again next week," @JunckerEU told @DLF just now.
Asked what #May needs to "have in her bag" when she goes to Brussels to ask for #Brexit extra time, #Juncker told @DLF that "approval of the negotiated [Withdrawal] Agreement" is precondition for extension.
.@JunckerEU on @DLF: "My assessment... we'll probably have to meet again next week because Mrs May doesn't have approval for anything — not in her Cabinet and not in Parliament. As long as we don't know what Britain could say yes to, we can't come to any decision."

Diplomatic sources: the #Corbyn visit to Brussels was a waste of time because he wants a) a general election b) a new deal featuring a customs union for which there is no time and he does not have a majority in the Commons. The visit left EU officials shaking their heads
The May visit also left EU officials shaking their heads in disbelief. May spoke of progress, Juncker was pessimistic that a no deal #Brexit could be averted. EU officials do not believe the WA will get a majority in the Commons
Work continues in Brussels on an additional document on #Brexit to be appended to the Withdrawal Agreement. It would have to be approved by EU leaders at their next summit on 21 March. It will then be given to UK. However it will not contradict the WA ie will not satisfy ERG

Il "mea culpa" di Jean-Claude #Juncker sull'austerità è una fake news che fa molto comodo alla narrativa, non alla verità

Ieri Juncker ha rivendicato di essersi battuto contro il FMI.

Ecco un esempio del 2012: scontro pubblico Juncker-Lagarde…
Nel 2015, quando non era più presidente dell'Eurogruppo ma della Commissione, Juncker si è battuto sempre contro il FMI ma anche contro Schaeuble.

Ecco un esempio che coinvolge il suo ex capo-gabinetto Martin Selmayr…
Juncker è un socialdemocratico trasvestito da popolare che ha più volte detto di essere contro "l'austerità cieca".

Esempi: Niente procedura perché "la Francia è la Francia". Flessibilità all'Italia fino al punto di screditare le regole. Niente multa a Spagna e Portogallo.

Oggi #Savona scrive al #Sole24Ore,visibilmente preoccupato per la mancanza di dialogo da parte della #Commissione europea. La lettera stranisce, perché sembrava invece essere proprio questo l'obiettivo del #Governo, sin dalla sua nascita.L'#Ue non è un interlocutore, è un nemico
Molti mi chiedono un'opinione anche sul comportamento della Commissione, giudicato eccessivamente duro e non imparziale. Sono d'accordo, è sicuramente così. Ma lo è perché la Commissione è fatta da politici (contrariamente alla vulgata dei "#burocrati di #Bruxelles").
Sono politici che, come tali, pensano alla loro carriera all'interno dell'istituzioni #UE o negli stati. Ecco perché contrastare in maniera rigida l'operato di un Gov che in maniera netta manifesta ogni giorno la sua avversità nei loro, con tanto di insulti, diventa inevitabile.

Juncker delivered his last #SOTEU2018 speech. Here are my major takeaways in a tweet #thread @CER_EU
1. As media had previously reported #Juncker decided not to focus on what his Commission achieved but on what still needs to be done to convince European citizens to say 'Yes' to the EU when they go to the polls next year.
2. I agree that it is not a good moment for pats on the back and I agree with #Juncker that member-states have in many respects held the Commission up from delivering on Commission's promises.
