Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The sollipsism is getting weirder.
UK's Johnson may use 'political chicanery' to bypass Brexit delay law: Ex-PM Major
if he cannot agree terms with the European Union in time for an Oct. 31 departure, former prime minister John Major said on Thursday.
Which terms? Extension period, explanation for the request, or mo' better EU customs surveillance of UK exports?
However, an alliance of opposition lawmakers and rebels from Johnson's Conservative Party forced through a law earlier this month which compels him to delay Brexit for three months if he has not agreed a deal by Oct. 19.
That authority is not part of Johnson's ahh remit under the TEU
"It is important to note that an Order of Council can be passed by Privy Councillors - that is government ministers - without involving HM (Her Majesty) The Queen," Mayor said.
Good news! The [Crown in] Parliament can change that act next week (or over the weekend!) during the Conservative Party conference, when Tory seats in chambers are sure to be emptied.

EU to ramp up pressure on Johnson to table detailed ["]backstop["] plan
"With only a few weeks remaining before October's European Council [meeting], the onus is firmly on the UK to come up with credible, fully worked-out and legally operable proposals in a timeframe that allows these proposals to be properly considered before the Council," Mr Coveney said.
My impression of EUWA2018, sec.13, and EUWA-2-2019 is, many MPs have had insufficient time to consider Documents laid before parliament as compared to 'BREXIT delay law'.
The Tánaiste added: "Unless and until it is shown that any alternative arrangements could pass this test, the EU position remains that the Withdrawal Agreement including the backstop is the only way forward."
Prepare to approve that or prepare for a derogatory reply to SCHEDULE FORM LETTER
Mr Barnier said yesterday that he was "still ready to work on any new legal and operational proposal" from Mr Johnson - but he indicated insufficient progress had been achieved in the past few weeks.
[ blah blah blah ]
The Institute for Government report said: "The Northern Ireland Office (NIO) lacks the clout within government to ensure that Northern Ireland issues were given the priority they perhaps deserved.

"Officials told us that the culture of 'no bad news' among ministers* translated into a reluctance to address the difficult issues raised by the Irish Border and need for cross-border co-operation - for example, the operation of the single electricity market."

landsakes. What are the odds EUWA-2-2019 could be amended to accommodate [Crown in] the parliament approval of a SCHEDULE BACKSTOP PLAN for attachment to SCHEDULE FORM LETTER?

A "second letter" to the EU Council, if you will. On or before 17 Oct 2019.
