    EU court ensure 32 vetoes on Brexit trade deal

    Have we done this one yet?

    https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/eu...--finance.html

    "Nicole Kar, head of international trade at law firm Linklaters, described the ECJ case as the most significant on EU trade policy for 20 years and said it would have "huge ramifications" for a future UK-EU deal.

    Britain, she said, would need to decide if it wanted a more modest agreement likely to be backed or the most comprehensive deal possible that risked falling hostage to member states."
    Hard Brexit now!

    Looks like a "quagmire" in the making.

    Basically the EU is simplifying everything to only aiming for an exit deal i.e. the "bar bill" and the fate of EU/UK nationals; the trade deal negotiations will begin after the UK has left the EU and it is a "third country"

    It looks like the UK will be offered a unilaterally dictated transition arrangement designed to protect the EU's interests.

    Certainly getting interesting.

    I'm alright Jack

      Erm, and whose interests should EU be protecting - own members or third country? All entirely predictable, that's why May went for election to get extra 2 years in power.

        2017-05-17 European judges clear path for a speedy post-Brexit trade deal by giving EU leaders the power to pass a free trade agreement by majority vote

        The European Court of Justice said Brussels can ratify complex trade deals

        It was feared Brexit talks could be stalled by various national parliaments

        The ECJ said unanimity is only required in two fairly niche trade deal areas

          Angela Merkel in the German parliament has just stated that if there is no "Freedom of Movement" Britain will pay a price.

          Lets face it FOM will be part of the deal, even if watered down a bit.

            Er, I think so
            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.

              Nope, it won't be - May put everything at stake on anti-immigration stance, she will just blame EU for "punishing UK", that's all - big painful spending cuts are yet to kick in.

                No, I don't think so.

                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.

                    It will be freedom of movement under another name.

                    May has been reading Thatcher biographies.
