Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the notion of the Non-paper may be the only interesting thing to come out of the entire Brexit fiasco. Kind of like the sound of one hand clapping or the path is the destination or the obstacle is the path, etc. An ungoverned unelected government based on an unwritten constitution issuing non-papers to vaguely address an undefined obstacle so as to avoid a solution to a problem that has no reason to exist. Om om om.

Except twitter#CivilService has established the term is not NEW! To-The-World of diplomatic speech and not peculiar to Bo-BREXIT fanfiction...

unless one remembers the library of UK position papers on the "future partnership" that was never scheduled by EU to occur until after BREXIT.

Remember how EU used to publish meeting agenda for the UK? in a color-coded ACTION! list format?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
