.@JunckerEU and @MichelBarnier addressing @EUparliament on Brexit - main points
1. Backstop proposals: EU still waiting for proposals but confirm that talks have been taking place (though focuses more on what the UK doesn’t want, rather than what it actually does want)
2. Constructive talks: with PM in Luxembourg and “in part” positive. Translation: talk is easy, finding a deal less so.
3. No deal would not be the end of negotiations: same problems wd need to be resolved (and quickly) and UK & EU should not underestimate disruption
4. Business uncertainty: @ManfredWeber says it’s not UK that is leaving but businesses & people
5. Yellowhammer: (some) MEPs clearly following what is happening in the UK. One suggests it has damaged PM’s Brexit vision.
6. EU unity: @guyverhofstadt suggests Brexit has brought EU together and increase popularity of EU Parliament (hmm..).
Logging off to listen to our WTO event @instituteforgov. Main takeaways from EU Parliament #Brexit debate to far: same messages (EU want a deal but waiting for UK to put fwd proposals), mix of surprise and irritation & closely following dvps in Westminster. END.
