1. New round of #Brexit talks in Brussels today & #Prexit behind us, let's take stock of what EU papers are saying in Ep 100 of 'Nothing Has Changed.' (Thread.)
2. France's @LesEchos says TM is "increasingly fragile." Notes, "Clearly, chances that outstanding Brexit issues are resolved" in this round of talks "are close to nill." lesechos.fr/monde/europe/0…
3. @LesEchos: "The increasingly fragility of TM is a subject that's preoccupying the minds of EU leaders, who prefer to negotiate with a strong leader."
4. @lemondefr: "TM is prisoner to a dilemma: if she keeps 'Boris', the master of blunders, she shows her weakness. But if she dismisses him (which he perhaps wishes, as leader of the Brexit campaign) she faces wrath of Europhobes & unleashes Tory civil war."
5. @franceculture has a podcast examining the "tangle of British diplomacy." franceculture.fr/emissions/les-…
6. @franceculture asks: "Can TM sort out the paralysis and disorganisation to achieve her stated objective of a 'Global Britain,' of new independence & influence outside the EU?"
7. "'Complete chaos' in the British Government," is Austrian @diepresse_com's take: diepresse.com/home/ausland/a…
8. Italy's @ilfoglio_it: "Show me the money. On Brexit, Europe is preparing for a 'no deal.'
9. @ilfoglio_it quotes EU leader saying EU-27 are expecting more "surprises" from London, i.e. "political crisis, or new elections," while banks are "perfecting their relocation plans." ilfoglio.it/esteri/2017/11…
10. Italy's @Corriere interviews DD following visit to Rome yesterday. DD quoted as saying new registration rules for 600K Italian citizens in UK will be "very fast". corriere.it/esteri/17_nove…
11. Germany's @welt: Dismayed at lack of progress,"major international banks could be executing their contingency plans for 'no deal' Brexit in the next few weeks" welt.de/wirtschaft/art…
12. Portuguese press more interested in Nigel Farage at #websummit17 (the man is everywhere) where he said Brexit & UKIP could not have happened without YouTube & social media.
13. Incidentally, Portuguese Econ Min, Manuel Caldeira Castro, also at #WebSummit17 repeating that Portugal would be "happy" to welcome companies leaving the UK and/or Catalonia.
14. Germany's @handelsblatt reports that EU had hoped for "a concrete financial offer from London. But Brexit-Miniser DD is coming to Brussels with empty hands yet again."
15. Germany’s @sz: ´Theresa May and her horror Cabinet.’ (with Fox, Fallon, May, Johnson & Patel highlighted in colour.)
16. @SZ: "At end of another disastrous day, TM was seen in public to attend the 25th anniversary celebration of Paul Dacre as head of the influential tabloid the Daily Mail."
17. @SZ: "Not only does behaviour of certain cabinet ministers contradict all professional standards (the gov't should speak w. one voice & keep the PM informed), but suggests that certain Ministers are not afraid of the consequences of such free-wheeling."
18. @SZ: "All these scandals, intrigues, accusations & power games in London provide the mood music for 6th sixth round of Brexit negotiations. Michel Barnier has already warned against too much hope for progress."
19. @SZ: A real liberation, i.e a Cabinet of ministers in whom she has full confidence, will be impossible for Theresa May." sueddeutsche.de/politik/vor-br…
20. Finland's @ylenews leads with "Theresa May's government in chaos - another minister forced to resign."
21. Sweden's @SvD: "The Defence and International Development ministers have resigned. The Foreign Secretary is considered to be "the least capable since World War II". The crisis hitting 10 Downing Street has reached hurricane strength."
