Section 50 and negotiations with the EU - delay is key.
Given that Brexit is now certain the UK has a challenging negotiation. It was to be expected that the UK would not immediately give notice to the EU under Article 50. What the UK needs to do ideally is to negotiate the settlement in substance before giv...

Tories delay the start of the process to exit.

Referendum in Italy and Netherlands vote leave.

With 3 less wealthier countries in union, burden falls heavier on France and Germany and Scandinavian countries

EU has a soul searching meeting and decides a free trade area is what they want and not a super state. Since they can no longer afford to equalise economies.

Europe officially goes multi speed.
Northern countries allow free movement southern countries are restricted.

But then again I'm not in charge

Norway vs the UK - Brexit could mean 10 Euros per person (per year) higher net contributions to the EU budget.
Because the UK's realistic alternative to the EU is membership of the EEA it is worth comparing Norway's situation to that of the UK. This is a relevant story about how being in the EEA (not having to follow the CAP or CFP) can mean countries having to foll...

Alternatives to The EU
What is good about the video below is that it simple takes part of the arguments of the people who wish to leave the EU and puts them together. I have looked at this issue before. UKIP used to propose the EEA which means not having a vote and just being co...
I have looked at this issue before. UKIP used to propose the EEA which means not having a vote and just being consulted on the rules that the UK has to follow. posted by John Hemming ¶ 9:51 am.

Injunctions, the Streisand Effect and Spycatcher

If the UK leaves the EU it does not automatically leave the EEA
It has been suggested to me that the UK's membership of the EEA is separate to its membership of the EU. The EEA agreement is here and the UK is a signatory rather than the EU on behalf of the UK. This actually means that leaving the EU without leaving th...

Trade agreements and the EU
It is interesting that Barack Obama has been clear about what is entirely obvious in terms of trade agreements. The EU is a Common Market. It starts out as a trade agreement. It has rules as to how the trade agreement's detailed rules change, but it is a...
