Too late for new Brexit deal, France's Macron tells Johnson
[DAWN] French President Emmanuel Macron told Prime Minister Boris Johnson
...pro-Brexit British prime minister, succeeding no-Brexit Theresa May. He is noted as much for his sparkling personality and his hair as for his Conservative policies....
on Thursday that there was not enough time to wholly rewrite Britannia's Brexit divorce deal before an October 31 deadline.

Johnson met Macron at the Elysee Palace a day after talks in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel
...chancellor of Germany and the impetus behind Germany's remarkably ill-starred immigration program. Merkel used to be referred to by Germans as Mom. Now they make faces at her for inundating the country with Moslem colonists...
, who challenged Britannia to come up with acceptable alternatives to the agreed safety net provision for the UK-Irish land border.

More than three years after the United Kingdom voted to quit the Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an Union, it is still unclear on what terms ‐ or indeed whether ‐ the bloc's second largest economy will leave the club it joined in 1973.

Talks over lunch were constructive, a French official said.

Macron left the door open to Britannia seeking a solution to the Irish "backstop", but said any alternative must respect both the integrity of the EU single market and stability on the divided island of Ireland.

"I want to be very clear," he said. "In the month ahead, we will not find a new withdrawal agreement that deviates far from the original."

#3 I am getting the impression that state-level actors (France and Germany) have their thumbs on the scale, and maybe not so much the EUcrats. France/Macron says too late suckers. Germany/hag whatshername says come up with a plan. Not coordinated, but if it is the EU, why state involvement at all? Not so deeply repressed resentment of Britain? Wasn't the idea of the EU the dissolution of the states and the rise of a single super-state? Vote until the voters 'get it right' then no more votes "thanks, this is my stop, I'll get off here"? Rotten smells predominate.

IMO, the FR/BEL/GER Troika that was running the EU ran into the problem that all would-be empire builders run into: $ Money $. The Swiss Bankers would laugh in their faces, the German Financiers have spent all they care to, so who's next to pillage? Name the remaining country with prosperous finances in Europe ... Tick-Tock-Tick ... Great Britain. England was soon to be plucked, roasted and devoured by their EU Masters.

#10 I just read that German banks are looking at negative interest rates for loans and mortgages — so they will pay the buyer rather than the other way round. And of course, if they’re losing money on every loan, they aren’t going to be handing out interest for savings accounts and bonds, nor dividends either. The discussion was around why that inverted thingy doesn’t matter — American returns are better and safer than anywhere else in the world, so international investors will continue sending us their money.
