Two of the candidates for the top EU jobs have been involved in Brexit negotiations – and could prove to be constructive deal makers, says Georgina Wright.
The next Prime Minister should seriously consider the threat that no deal poses to Northern Ireland – but Jill Rutter says that neither Jeremy Hunt nor Boris Johnson have shown any signs of doing so.
By upping their rhetoric to appeal to the hardcore party membership, Hunt and Johnson are steadily moving away from reality, says Tim Durrant.
Under a no deal Brexit, the UK would face much of the same obstacles as now – only it would be in a weaker negotiating position, argues Georgina Wright.
The prospect of a no deal Brexit is growing but, writes Joe Owen, a new prime minister might be suprised by the lack of preparation.
Top of the in-tray for Theresa May’s successor will be a decision on their approach to the EU, says Tim Durrant.
The stalling of political progress on Brexit has left frustrated civil servants without any sense of what they are working towards, writes Joe Owen.
It was the vote that wasn’t supposed to happen but, says Jill Rutter, it is still worth voting in the European Parliament elections.
As talks continue between Labour and the Government, Jill Rutter argues the two sides are within touching distance – but that does not mean they will meet.
The EU’s latest Brexit extension offer was more about protecting the EU than helping the UK to sort itself out, writes Georgina Wright
