Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Trying to negotiate a deal to get a competitive edge on EU27 nations by undercutting social and environmental regulations. SHAME The powerful cheating that will cost the People and Planet dearly. The Conservative gang from the White Man's Antlantic alliance do never learn the lessons from history. The Tory favorite boogeyman - Jeremy Corbyn - is sufficient to call him by name and renage on providing sound arguments or facts in  debate. A worthless bunch - kick them out now!

Brexit talks in a state of paralysis - EU Brussels

    The EU's chief negotiator told envoys from member states that Britain was determined to diverge from EU standards as part of a future trade deal, adding further tension between Mr Johnson's government and the bloc.

    According to a leaked diplomatic note seen by the Financial Times, Mr Barnier said: "we are currently in a state of paralysis".

    The warning came on the same day that David Frost, the UK's chief negotiator, met for more than six hours with his EU counterpart. EU officials said Mr Frost provided no suggestions for how the UK could replace the Irish backstop from the Brexit divorce deal while maintaining an open border in Ireland ...

    Along with demands on the backstop, Mr Frost has also called for a trade agreement that would allow the UK to break free of EU regulations in areas such as social and environmental standards.
