MEI and the 2017 EU Timetable

First half of 2017 should be interesting:

February 2017 - deadline for Switzerland to implement quotas

March 2017 - NL General elections. GW promised a Nexit vote if he wins

May 2017 - FR elections. Le Pen seems to be calling for repatriation of powers form EU and possibly a referendum, but unimaginable that FR would leave EU

Re: MEI and the 2017 EU Timetable

You forgot the probable UK recession in first half 2017 or Q2/Q3.

There's no room for CH-EU discussions for the time being. Either implement MEI in our own, or (the sensible thing IMO) propose a Gegenvorschlag to the RASA-Initiative which asks what should be prioritized, MEI or Bilaterals and have that voted on ASAP.

Re: MEI and the 2017 EU Timetable

No, no, the Swiss are going to insist.

Oops! Well, perhaps not.

http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/tough-ne...-vote/42255084

Apply the safeguard clause if necessary and carry on using the rest of the bilaterals as normal if the EU can't be bothered to do anything except stall and threaten. It's all they've done since the vote in Feb 2014 so I can't see them changing their spots now, even post Brexit.

It's the same as Schulz, president of EU parliament, on his Facebook page:
"The start of the withdrawal procedure must take place immediately and the negotiations between the UK and the EU must be speedy: there is no time for delays. "

He's essentially telling the UK how to improve their bargaining position.

He might also be concerned that the UK delegation will not be able to afford their hotel rooms by the time they come to the bargaining table.
