Yes, as many of us have predicted, the closer we get to March 29th the more desperate the EU dictators become.

He has told opposition leaders Ireland would have to be treated “as one bloc” with the UK by the EU to avoid a Hard Border.

In other words, the EU will treat the republic of ireland as part of the UK. That will go well with the IRA.

Barnier is the EU office boy. He's out of his depth.

We should only be negotiating with elected leaders

It will most likely be unacceptable to the DUP who are propping up the government

I know I'm a cynic but maybe it was the case all along; a bit like when shops put the price up by £1 then reduce it by 50p, everyone thinks they are getting a bargain.

Better a hard border that encompasses both of the islands, than a hard border that encompasses only the large island and cuts through the north of the smaller island.

Hi

Every so called U Turn by the EU is done to protect their industries and interests in the immediate aftermath of a No Deal.

They are not giving an inch on anything significant.
