Revoke, a public vote or a sensible cross-party deal. Whatever the choice of the British people & Parliament, I hope the nightmare ends well before Halloween.

A longer extension would have been better! But prioritized his own election campaign and interests over European unity. now needs to use new deadline to either decide on the case or a political path forward. Good news: time should be sufficient for that.

(3) Liberals & Macron not supportive of process; (4) much more complex ‘leadership puzzle’ in 2019 -> need to (s)elect 5 leadership positions (COM-P; -P; HR/VP; EP-P; -P); (5) in 2014: decision on COM-P & HR/VP separated from other leadership questions;
