    Europe’s top Brexit officials have made clear their view of Britain’s bleak prospects in the forthcoming Article 50 negotiations by hanging a mocking poster on the walls of their Brexit war room.

    A Brussels source spotted the satirical poster hanging framed on the walls of the European Council’s Brexit task force meeting room.

    The Spanish have said they would respect Scottish independence achieved with agreement with London but they would oppose Scottish attempts to remain in the EU.

    If Scotland were to leave the United Kingdom following agreement with London and in accordance with the law, Spain would respect the move, but would not allow the country to remain in the European Union following Brexit. For Madrid, Scotland is only part of the EU if the United Kingdom is.
    No big surprise there.

    However, they are open to the idea of a special status for the North of Ireland allowing free movement between north and south. This they say can not apply to Gibraltar.

    At the same time as Madrid is refusing to accept the idea of an independent Scotland, it says it might be prepared to make an exception in the case of Northern Ireland on the basis of its special relationship with the Republic of Ireland and the fact that an open border between the two parts of the island are fundamental to the 1998 Good Friday agreement that brought an end to three decades of violence between Catholics and Protestants. Spain is prepared, under certain conditions, to look into maintaining the free movement of people between the two Irelands, which would become an EU border following Brexit.

    But while Scotland cannot be compared to Catalonia, neither can Northern Ireland be likened to Gibraltar, says Madrid.

    Love it, but what does it indicate, hanging in that office?? Burned their boats??

    BTW, who are our bucko's on the negotiating team in Brx? The usual perm reps office suspects and long term Irish EC/Council bureaucrats? Any names?

    Isn't the reaction to be expected in Spain, opens the door to various groupings in Spain for the same deal?

    complete gobbledygook


    People and goods entering the North from elsewhere would be subject to the constraints that obtain for entry to Britain. And people and goods entering the South from elsewhere would be subject to the entry constraints of the EU.


    The British mainland would not impose any immigration or import constraints in the case of people or goods returning to the mainland, originating in the North, or gaining entry from elsewhere (under British rules) to the North. Equally, the continental EU would not impose any constraints on people or goods returning to the continent, originating in the South, or gaining entry from elsewhere (under EU rules) to the South. And either of these areas would allow people or goods in transit to the other domain to pass through without constraint.

    There can surely be only one reply - LoL...?? But, the pols will latch on to this one, easier to get publicity for this than Larry Goodman's cheap burgers.

    An America tax court has rules that Amazon's Luxembourg based operation is outside the US tax net. The reason? Amazon sold the know-how for their ops to the Luxo subsidiary, simple really. A Brexit solution for the FDIs here??

    I have the same contempt for the Brussels elite at this stage as I have for the Brits.

    Just more imperialist guff. Rajoy is on his last lap just like Enda anyways. Spain's political flux, like our own, has only begun.
