We've only asked for a three-month delay, apparently (until June). This does at least rule out asking for a longer delay later, because of the European elections issue, so it now seems certain that...

Not a lot this week...

1. I was in Munich last October so should really have seen it and remember, but I'm fairly sure it's red and white.

At lunchtime I saw a Ferrari of a kind I don't see as often. It was a silver Ferrari 550 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari_550) from the late '90s, I think, or possibly a 575 (Ferrari 575M...

Yes, I think it should be interpreted as voting down that attempt to authorise a second referendum, not as voting it down in general. If somebody else suggests it later or in terms they prefer, it...

If they vote down every possible option, then whatever happens it won't be their fault because they'll have clearly said that they didn't want it to happen. Don't blame them!

From what I gather, yes. It's no real skin off anybody's nose on the (rest of the) European side, and it shows goodwill. Also there might actually be some useful things to be done. Beyond June, no,...
