Careless talk and the forthcoming EU summit on the Joint Proposal.



Here is the relevant part of a motion to be put to the European Parliament concerning comments by recent UK ministers.

[The EU Parliament] ‘is of the opinion that negotiations can only progress during the second phase if the UK government fully respects the commitments it made in the Joint Report and they are fully translated into the draft Withdrawal Agreement.’

Quite how this will translate into action at the forthcoming EU summit remains to be seen.
