19. The EU Council's negotiating principles









Principle 22 is fun:



The media and politicians seem to be acting all surprised. Don't know why - they seemed to have their finger on the pulse of opinion within the Spanish government when it came to vetoes, and were keen for everybody to know about it.

It just turns out that it's not Scotland's accession to the EU the Spanish would veto, it's any Brexit deal that doesn't meet Spain's approval about arrangements for Gibraltar. As pointed out in this very DU group on a number of occasions.

There are a few other aspects that seem to also be causing surprise and a little consternation ("EU will ban UK from cutting tax or scrapping regulation as price of trade deal".

Text version of the principles here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03/31/full-eus-draft-guidelines-brexit-negotiations/
