The UK’s new Brexit plan raises five EU concerns.
Suspending parliament would accentuate the hard Brexit risk and the UK’s constitutional crisis.
Can von der Leyen make a difference? Probably yes — but only modestly so.
The European Commission should grant Greece short-term fiscal leeway under the condition that Mitsotakis indeed delivers the promised reforms.
Despite some obstacles, it is likely that Ursula von der Leyen will lead the next European Commission.
A deal on how to fill the top jobs in Europe is almost across the line. The actual candidates however are somewhat surprising.
Boris Johnson would face a specific handicap in his talks with Brussels. The desire to grant him any concession is virtually zero.
Buoyed by its recent election success, could Germany’s Green Party claim the chancellorship when Merkel leaves office?
Even in case of a hard Brexit, the UK would probably end up having to accept most of the Withdrawal Agreement.
