    From Bloomberg........


    The EU side is redrafting its proposal on how to keep the Irish border open. It realizes that its first attempt would never be acceptable to the U.K. The focus now is how to minimize the checks between Northern Ireland and Britain. EU officials are looking at technical solutions that it can play down – checks that don’t look like a border. That fits with Barnier’s call to “de-dramatize” the issue. Any new proposal needs to win over the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party that props up May in Westminster. One diplomat said a new text might just allow the Democratic Unionist Party to sell it as a victory.



    So what’s the path to a deal? The next part of the choreography will come at a summit next week in Salzburg, Austria. Leaders are likely to signal they are ready to reach an agreement on security and defense cooperation to give May something to sell to her party at the conference, Ian Wishart reports. Leaders are also likely to put pressure on May to agree to the Irish border proposal. As the mid-October summit that’s already in the diary may come too soon after the Conservative Party gathering, they are likely to call a leaders’ meeting for the week of Nov. 12. And the text on the future relationship – the non-binding declaration that will accompany the divorce deal – will be drafted in such a way as to help May sell it back home. According to one diplomat, the EU is leaning toward writing “whatever suits Britain politically to get us across the line.”





    Bit of a change of tune here........



    It Won’t Be That Bad | Ryanair Holdings chief Michael O’Leary, an outspoken Brexit critic and doomsayer about the prospect of no-deal, is investing in new routes that will come on line just days after the split. The low-cost carrier will add 23 destinations at four London airports for its summer 2019. O’Leary said any disruption would probably last a matter of days. “We don’t think those disruptions will last very long because they are politically unsaleable both to the British electorate and the EU electorate,” O’Leary told Bloomberg Television. “Even Jacob Rees-Mogg and some of the crazier wing of the Brexiteers will struggle to explain why there are no flights.”


    As a general rule the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information.

    But ... but … is it not the case that nothing is agreed until all is agreed? Mind you, if something has been put to bed, you'd think it would stay in bed …

    They say this is not Brexit related....
    Quote... A record number of citizens from EU states were detained on immigration grounds and deported from Northern Ireland in 2016, the year of the Brexit referendum.

    The Home Office figures were obtained by investigative website The Detail.

    The figures show that 161 EU nationals were detained at Larne House in 2016.

    Larne house opened in 2011 and is Northern Ireland's only immigration detention centre. unquote.. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-45486606

    Alot of finer details leaking...
    Quote.. UK drivers may have to get an international driving permit if they want to drive in some European countries after a no-deal Brexit.

    The government says that after March 2019 "your driving licence may no longer be valid by itself" in the EU, in its latest no-deal planning papers.

    It also warns that Britons travelling to the EU may need to make sure their passports have six months left to run. unquote.. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45512152
