iPhone : EU27 would destroy the basic rules which made Single Market (and Common Trade Policy) huge successes...if rules bent for U.K., why not for Norway, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary and others? That would be furthermore an empty gift as SM without strict rules would not work anymore ! twitter.com/anandmenon1/stโ€ฆ

Twitter Web Client : A small majority, delivered through cheating and lies, for an unknown destination, that will be worse by far than what was promised. That's not democracy, James. That's a swindle. twitter.com/JamesCleverly/โ€ฆ

Twitter Web Client : ... painted herself into this corner May has only one way out and that's an extension of time. However unpalatable that may be for her it is the only course she can take. Unanimity amongst the EU27 for this course of action is a given.

So Spain may veto the very thing that Eire insists on in pressing its case for the independence of Gibraltar & its accession to the EU.

Twitter Web Client : From a Spanish point of view this may not be entirely ideal because it may make it possible to be simultaneously present on both sides of the Spain/Gibraltar frontier. Spain may see a solution to this in both a hard border between Spain & Gibraltar and between Gibraltar & UK.

Twitter Web Client : 'Work around Brexit' involves a 'Common Regulatory Area' in Northern Ireland which places NI simultaneously in the EU Internal Market and the UK Internal Market with Freedom of Movement across the EU/UK frontier on the island of Ireland.

iPhone : Both Eire & Spain exercise vetoes over the Withdrawal Agreement. In the absence of a WA the two frontiers will be similar, Eire is not in Schengen but Spain is.
