The British and EU negotiators have met again in Brussels on Monday, but everything seems to indicate that it is a formality and that there is no possibility of progress. The attorney general, Geoffrey Cox, was scheduled to appear in Parliament to report on the status of the renegotiation with the EU, but everything is in the air at this point.
In the air are the votes for the ‘no agreement’ (Wednesday) and the extension of Article 50 (Thursday). The most probable option would be the delay of time, which should have in any case the approval of the 27 and that would create collateral problems for the holding of the European elections on May 26.
Downing Street has acknowledged that the Brexit negotiations are “deadlocked”, 24 hours from the final vote planned in Westminster and the possibility that it is the Parliament itself that decides head or tail between the ‘no agreement’ ( which does not have sufficient support in principle) and the extension of Article 50 (supported by the majority).
The Prime Minister, Theresa May, spoke on Sunday evening with the president of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker, to certify the insurmountable differences in the question of safeguarding to avoid the hard border between the two Ireland. Brussels has rejected in recent weeks proposals to put a time limit or to allow London to leave the protection mechanism unilaterally.
British seems to do not like what they see out of the European Union but they have too much pride to go backwards now.
