These pieces about how #Coronavirus has wrecked a borderless Europe annoy me - especially when they quote Macron about opening again. France has been the biggest hypocrite on #Schengen since 2015, with DE close behind during the refugee crisis!

theguardian.com/world/commenti…
Also the basic issue is this: does restriction on the movement of people make sense during #Coronavirus - yes, it does. Because it can stop transmission. The problem is closing borders is about the only mechanism states have, not least because 2015 broke that taboo.
Germany has suffered this a bit less perhaps, as with 16 Länder local restrictions for health reasons are easier to do. But elsewhere in Europe that's not so much of an issue.

New 🇫🇷🇩🇪 proposal for 🇪🇺 #COVID19 recovery published yesterday: This is an important & long-awaited step w/ several important proposals on #health, Recovery Fund, #GreenDeal & #Digital. This will help COM have political backing for ambitious proposal. /1 bundeskanzlerin.de/resource/blob/…
Some first thoughts:🇫🇷🇩🇪understanding is necessary, but not sufficient for European Council compromise. And it won't be a walk in the park: Expect opposition from "Frugals" (e.g. 🇦🇹 opposed to an increased #MFF & wants loans.) But positive signs: 🇮🇹 &🇪🇸 on board. /2
On #MFF: question whether 500 bn will be sufficient & how the fund will be used (who gets what, how & when?) - Devil is in the details. Interesting link between #GreenDeal & #Digital. Strong emphasis on #strategicautonomy & #sovereignty in #health is rather positive. /3

We want to reach arrangements with these countries that make clear where it is possible to go and under which circumstances. We want to ensure the greatest possible safety for the citizens when deciding where to go on vacation. - Foreign Minister @HeikoMaas 3/4

💬Welcome our leaders, delegates, guests & the press to #Zagreb as we kick off our 2-day #EPPZagreb Congress. It's an important Congress as @EPP delegates will elect a new leadership & vote on the party's stance on important policies. Image
💬With a new President and a new Presidency, the @EPP enters a new era. EPP was once again victorious in #EP2019 European elections & managed to elect again an EPP Commission President, but we must now change too to improve & adapt to new realities Image
💬I couldn't be more proud to sit next to PM @AndrejPlenkovic today. I have followed his ascent from the beginning of his career in the @Europarl_EN & I knew he would leave a mark and make history for #Croatia. PM #Plenkovic' leadership & vision is praised at home & in Europe

1)A #brexit thread on 'frictionless' trade:

@bbcsoutheast decided to see how easy/difficult it would be to export an item from #Switzerland 🇨🇭(outside the EU) to the UK🇬🇧(inside the EU) to get an idea of what British businesses might have to do after #Brexit.
2) It’s obviously not an exact analogy. Switzerland is in the #singlemarket for many goods and in #Schengen, for example. But it’s outside the customs union, so the idea was to get a sense of what friction might need to be tackled.
3/ The item we decided to buy was this (it's a car exhaust):

FLASH 🔴 Disparition d'un groupe de tambourinaires venus du #Burundi en #Suisse: le @BurundiGov "tient l'Ambassade de #Belgique à #Bujumbura pour seule responsable des conséquences de l'octroi des facilités à des personnes qui veulent ternir l'image du Burundi"
Le @BurundiGov s’étonne "de la facilité avec laquelle l'Ambassade de #Belgique au #Burundi a délivré les visas à des gens sensés allés représenter le Burundi sans qu'ils n'aient présenté de document officiel" alors que l'@BelgiumInBuja est minutieuse "quand il s'agit d'officiels"
COMMUNIQUÉ 🔴 Rappelant que "la #Belgique délivre les visas au #Burundi pour les courts séjours au nom des membres de la zone #Schengen", les ambassades de l'#UE "nient toute volonté de nuire à l’image du Burundi" dans l'affaire des tambourinaires burundais disparus en #Suisse

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?

Here’s Daniel Hannan. He doesn’t understand the #CustomsUnion, the #SingleMarket or the #Schengen area.
I think we need to help Dan. Norway and Switzerland are in the #SchengenArea. Within the Schengen Area people can cross the borders without passport control. Try driving a lorry full of goods into Norway nd Switzerland and you go through customs checks.
This is Svinesund Customs Station at the main border crossing between Norway and Sweden. It can handle up to 2500 lorries a day. Clearing customs usually takes less than ten minutes, but may tale a couple of hours.

This is the Customs station at Svinesund, the main border crossing between 🇳🇴 and 🇸🇪 . It can handle up to 2,500 trucks/day - one truck every 4 min. 10,000 trucks go through Dover every day. Do the maths. It’s not possible. 🇳🇴 is in #SingleMarket but not in #CustomsUnion
But this should also give remainers some hope. I don’t think it will be possible for UK to leave both #CustomsUnion union and #SingleMarket - UK is not in #Schengen - Norway is in both Schengen and SM which makes trade easier, even if there’s a hard border between 🇸🇪and 🇳🇴
Then there’s the Irish Border of course. Again not possible to have a soft border between NI and ROI if UK leaves Single market and Customs Union. Even an EEA, Norway, solution would require a hard border here. Brexit is stupid!
