It's our #NegotBrexit event today, so some early thoughts for you

We've been monitoring most EU member states and institutions on their approach to #brexit and #a50

There's a very high degree of buy-in to COM's approach, leading to a broadly united front

However, also clear most states don't think Brexit is particularly important, either relative to rest of EU policy or more broadly

Germany and Ireland have been central in shaping mandate, with EUCO/COM/EP working closely in Brussels

Also evident that states understand brexit primarily through domestic politics lens (except possibly Germany), so local pay-offs matter

Unity now likely to be tested as we move towards #A50 end-game, especially once defence of EU as a system is dealt with

In short, Article 50 isn't going to get any easier for UK or for EU
