A couple of points on issue connection at this week's #EUCO

Brexit is on the agenda, but right down the list, as EU has plenty of other stuff to deal with.

Info here:…

That other stuff is proving problematic, and pressingly so, so expect it to take up much of the bandwidth tomorrow and Fri

Chuck in the way EU27 are handling Brexit issues: ie at arm's length

And you have a recipe that points to the UK being on the edge of things again

That's not intrinsically a problem, since EU already expecting nothing substantive from UK until the WP next month

However, it is the last opportunity to press the flesh with EU leaders before the summer break, so probably useful to indicate strength of intent to unblock matters

Dilemma for May is that EU now needs substance, which is precisely not what she can offer right now

One option is to show good-will in helping with other issues (migration, security & defence, etc.) to highlight continuing relationship

Failing that, the priority is keeping the show on the road and now provoking any immediate rows

Which sounds like fun

One tweet take: EU has other things to deal with; UK might usefully take note of these
