Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
EU says it would not open [trade] talks with UK after no-deal Brexit until it agrees to [sign up to the main elements of the withdrawal agreement anyway]
on cross-party "Political Declaration"
"Whatever happens the UK will have to respond to the three main questions of the separation: one, citizens' rights, they must be respected and protected. Two, the UK will have to continue to honour its financial commitments taken as a member state. And three, a solution will have to be found for the island of Ireland, preserving peace and the single market.
[Junker] also said member states should approve her request for a short extension until 22 May, but only "if the United Kingdom is in a position [?] to approve the withdrawal agreement with a sustainable majority" before a planned summit next week.
stupidly elects 22 May BREXIT "request"
"If it has not done so by then [12 April], no further short extension will be possible. After 12 April, we risk jeopardising the European parliament elections and so threaten the functioning of the European Union."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
