    sas's post that started this thread, and the article he cited, was obviously intended to imply that EU countries' votes had to be unanimous, no doubt hoping to convince and thus worry casual readers this was such a stringent condition it would be impossible to meet.

    But, as the article I cited made clear, in fact nearly all the relevant decisions will require only majority voting.

    Careful OH, you will have them rocking backwards and forwards in their safe spaces if you keep presenting facts to them.
    Both articles are reporting on the same court case it's just the right wing media report has put their own spin on it, their alternative if you like.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

      The European court of justice has raised a ray of hope for British trade negotiators with a surprise ruling that will make it harder for national parliaments to block key components of any future post-Brexit deal between the EU and the UK.

      In a long-awaited test case that had been expected to complicate the Brexit process, the court instead ruled that EU officials had exclusive powers to negotiate international trade deals without ratification by national and regional parliaments
