Quoted @lisaocarroll

Shanker Singham tells Brexit comm: "I don't think we should be afraid of this, it is quite likely that we will be in litigation over Northern Ireland protocol and that is not the end of the world. In fact, litigation is quite often a very good way of clarifying your obligations"

Thus speaks a man who lives very far from here. https://t.co/mdghMLWuqy

Quoted @CER_EU

British business leaders are very nervous about the consequences of no deal. They have said rather little this year, for fear that attempts to influence the government would be counter-productive. New insight article by @CER_Grant https://t.co/3doirFbv05

The words 'could', 'may well' and 'possibly' figure prominently in this piece by @CER_Grant. Can only hope his analysis that a deal on #Brexit remains 'plausible outcome' is correct. Trust and time the key variables - and there is less of either now than a month ago. https://t.co/KmXpH9wTXK

Quoted @AnthonyBarnett

Europe isn't one thing or the other. A reflection on @JudithHerrin2 's Ravenna. For @CER_Grant @markhleonard @duncanrobinson https://t.co/FUbwdyTiyQ

A fascinating read - Theodoric the Goth in Ravenna seems more interesting than Charles Michel and the recovery fund in Brussels. https://t.co/nCHwLvDZNB

If Johnson and his team had wanted to torpedo the negotiations, they would surely have focused on issues that directly threatened the EU’s single market and customs union. New insight article by @CER_Grant https://t.co/3doirFt5RD

Very good @CER_Grant where are we now paper on Brexit deal. I think he's right Johnson wants a deal. But he is terrified of telling his party to put national interest first. He needs an Iain McLeod. A Brexit deal may yet emerge from the current confusion https://t.co/HFLvVckp6j

Very interesting @CER_Grant analysis on why a Brexit deal is still a possibility despite the current impasse: compromises are feasible and political pressure will increase https://t.co/FfRbbR2bzc

Quoted @CER_Grant

In a new @CER_EU insight on #Brexit, I argue that EU & UK could still reach a deal. The pressures on BJ to get a deal will grow - eg need to demonstrate competence in light of Covid-19, Scottish politics, businesses screaming, Tory MPs speaking out. https://t.co/21AbE5ZBPS

Not impossible but it will require a drastic modification of the UK internal market bill before. https://t.co/rk0mFqAIgS

Apparently Frost wants a deal – but only on his terms; he is said to believe that the EU will compromise if the UK takes a sufficiently robust line. New insight article by @CER_Grant https://t.co/3doirFt5RD

"Goodwill among the EU-27 towards the British government is at an all-time low", says @CER_Grant - but a deal is still possible, and one that protects UK environmental standards. Let's hope those who want a deal win the day!

I admire @CER_Grant for his unswerving belief that logic and reason ultimately call all politicians to order. I desperately want him to be proven right. https://t.co/iQICzwcPta

I am far from certain that there will be a #Brexit deal, but it seems to me a little more likely than not that there will be one. https://t.co/sAFnncKt46

Delighted to be welcoming @fromTGA @CER_Grant and @HeleneBismarck on Monday 28 September for a discussion on the run-up to German reunification in 1990! #GermanReunification #TDE2020 #30YearsOfGermanUnity https://t.co/FEkvSY1BZG

A good article of @CER_Grant on why EU & UK could still reach a deal. Reasons for UK PM to get a deal are growing: eg need to demonstrate competence in light of Covid-19, Scottish independence, Tory MPs speaking out, businesses uproar. https://t.co/m1E09RR92t

"The EU is a machine for making deals and will do what it can to facilitate an agreement... The Commission will... be creative in offering the UK... ways of climbing down that could enable Johnson to proclaim that he has achieved victories" - @CER_Grant https://t.co/0elb3GOXwa

The UK’s Internal Market Bill tears up parts of the Withdrawal Agreement. Yet Boris Johnson and the EU both want their trade talks to succeed, and a deal may yet emerge. New insight article by @CER_Grant https://t.co/3doirFt5RD

V. much looking forward to my @BGA debate with @fromTGA & @CER_Grant about German reunification, a turning point not just of German, but European history. https://t.co/Dr9EIoUV67

Great overview by @CER_IanBond @CER_SophiaBesch and other CER colleagues on the state of EU-China_us relations just weeks before the November american elections. Very serious as always @CER_Grant https://t.co/th0kf5D8iW

Is the government backing down on the “food blockade” row? How a boring, technical issue became whipped up into jingoistic nonsense - thread.
