More EU-UK Brexit talks set after Cox sets out backstop changes | Reuters -  

HOPES of Brexit breakthrough rose last night as Ministers prepared to return to Brussels with new legal wording to fix the hated Irish 'backstop'. Sources said Attorney General Geoffrey Cox and Brexit secretary Steve Barclay will present Eurocrats with fresh proposals designed to reassure MPs in talks on Wednesday.


Speaking separately on Monday evening, the head of the EU's executive, Jean-Claude Juncker, said "no one in Europe would oppose it" if London asked for a Brexit delay beyond the current date of March 29 to get more negotiating time.

He also suggested Britain could go for a longer extension of the so-called Article 50 legal time limit on agreeing divorce terms if it decided to organize European Parliament elections on its soil in May.  

Has Juncker been drinking again so late in the game ??
