Finally some awareness in the media :https://behindthepaywall2.wordpress.com/2018/03/10/politicians-are-so-lost-in-groupthink-that-they-are-failing-us-on-both-brexit-and-power-stations/
[quote]Last Sunday I wrote that, after a year of the two sides just talking past each other on Brexit, the moment had come when hard reality was at last breaking in on the British government’s serial make-believe. This has since been even more brutally confirmed.
"It seems that we are much nearer to a complete breakdown of negotiations than has yet been generally realised"
There was a time when Philip Hammond seemed to have more grip on reality than his colleagues. But last week he blew it twice over. In first setting out his hopes that the City could continue to play a central part in European Union financial services by relying on “mutual recognition”, he seemed unaware that such an arrangement would be flatly contrary to EU law.
Hammond says EU fishermen could have access to British waters post-Brexit
He then stated that we would be reclaiming full control of our fishing waters, oblivious to the fact that this would be against UN law, which protects other countries’ “acquired fishing rights”.
Finally, we had Donald Tusk warning that, unless the UK comes up with a realistic proposal on the Irish border, there can be no wider trade talks. With less than two weeks before the crucial EU council meeting to conclude the border issue satisfactorily, it seems that we are much nearer to a complete breakdown of negotiations than has yet been generally realised./quote]
