Such a surprise… Not !
Amazing TM did not include this in the orginal letter she sent, instead of ‘implying’ the withholding of security information for trade…,Doh !
It does seem like a surprising and glaring omission.
On the other hand, I was surprised in the opposite direction to see how much awareness the EU’s response showed regarding the implications for Ireland. It made a point of saying they would do all they could to find a “creative” solution.
I have to say that up to press, the EU seems to have a clearer grasp of the “bigger picture” and the peripheral issues that Britain needs to keep a close eye on, than TM does.
Which Anna, is surprising, as we (UK) have had 9 months to get this first part of the negotiation ‘water tight’.
Disgraceful that they had to get security of European citizens (and our so called allies) even remotely connected to getting a good deal. That is just madness and surprising no one advised against it.
Quite sad seeing UK Gov trying to backtrack, when it’s in the letter, for all to see…
‘Project fear’ predicted it all, go back and read what the ‘experts’ said because most of it is going to come to pass. If anyone thinks those that bankrolled the ‘leave’ campaign didn’t know what would happen they need to think again! ‘Little england’ is about to get a whole lot smaller and even more insignificant. So they have '‘control’ but if what?
I’m not sure David.
I think they believe it will not be that bad (Leavers) and all the bad news which is coming, is the fault of those ‘rotten bureaucrats’ in the EU, which is causing all the problems.
Just wait for the negative comments from The Daily Mail re future negotiation from the EU side…
