Pia Gripenberg: Sensation in London – but not the british one itself, the EU must set ultimatum

Wednesday night news from London - we never want to leave the EU without agreement - is basically incredibly welcome for the other EU countries, even if the decision is not legally binding. It shows in all cases that the british parliamentarians to appreciate their membership in the European union. Or at least enough big parts of it.

the Decision resolves, however, nothing. Still know the other member states only what parliament does NOT want to have: not their government negotiated Brexitavtal, not a hard Brexit.

from the british what they WANT. What for something in this troubled Brexitsoppa can a sufficient number of parliamentarians to endorse?

– do not Direct their attention towards Brussels. Direct them towards London to get the answer, repeated the EUROPEAN commission's spokesperson on Wednesday.

But if the politicians there continues to grope himself? And also know that voters are almost equally divided now as they were in the referendum in 2016?

To set the ultimatum is difficult. But it is worthwhile to consider whether it is possible to get the british to choose from such as Theresa Mays agreement or a customs union with the EU. Pressure from Brussels can also be the one that gets the London to pull themselves together and find a solution.

this constant uncertainty about britain's future in the EU is not good for anyone. Not for the companies. Not for over three million EU citizens living in the Uk and almost one million britons living in the EU. Not for young people who are considering where they should study next semester.
