Another key message from our #NegotBrexit event: no one can quite believe how much of a mess the UK has got itself into

In all member states we're monitoring there was a confusion that HMG had called a referendum it didn't have to, surprise it was lost...

And then disbelief that HMG hasn't been able to pull together a plan for #A50 in time since.

Two big consequences

1st is continuing uncertainty that UK is really going through with this, given (to them) evident costs and problems.

Note, not effort to change UK's mind, more "surely they can see it's a disaster"

2nd, contributes to sense that this is just a British 'thing', and all will be well once UK leaves.

Little self-reflection on EU's systemic problems, of which brexit is only most extreme manifestation. Risk of this coming round again

In short, the conceptualisation matters
