EU - Unanimous?

Post by harryc » Mon May 01, 2017 8:29 am

There are many aspects of the EU that require Unanimous decisions. Can the UK now play nasty and just block all kinds of stuff before they are 'gone?'' (Or use that veto possibility as a chip in the exit dealings?)

Later (edited):

A thorough reading of this Telegraph piece

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/0/what- ... d-to-read/

comes close to being explicit in that once Article 50 has ben triggered - the UK loses any say. But am surprised it isn't said more directly. The UK will also be paying EU during this time - no say how and where spent? What about EU projects already started for UK?

A real can of spaghetti

Why do we care that you don't care about it?

I don't understand the point you're trying to make harryc.

First you said that the UK could play awkwardly during the exit process.
Then you said they wouldn't be able to.

I don't actually care much either. I opened a bottle of asti when I heard the referendum result and will open another when the leaving process ends.

Political correctness is the belief that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

That's why I posted the edit and highlighted it.

The first comment reflected what I heard many people wondering about.

In any case, the process we are going to see is going to be saying a lot about what's going to be happening in Europe - it goes FAR beyond Brexit and deserves the attention of everyone.
