Keep your cake, Donald
Dear Reader,

 Ah, Donald Tusk you absolute scallywag. Surely you have better things to do than talk Brexit all day?

 What am I saying. You’re a politician. You’re an EU politician. Of course you don’t have anything of real value to contribute!

 If you haven’t heard Tusk’s latest speech, he has a suggestion for you. If you believe that Britain can keep its single market membership without accepting freedom of movement, try this: “To all who believe in it, I propose a simple experiment. Buy a cake, eat it, and see if it is still there on the plate.”

 I’ll have a go, Donald. But not because you told me to. I was going to eat a cake anyway. Clearly he believes that people who aren’t smart enough to understand politics might understand cake instead.

 This culminated in Tusk boiling his position down to: “It’s either Hard Brexit or no Brexit.”

 We’ll see. Tusk – like many people preparing the battleground ahead of negotiations (which keep in mind haven’t started yet, this is just the preamble) – appears to be operating from a position of strength. The falling pound probably reinforces that.

 But really, Tusk is operating from a position of desperation. The EU must be defended at all costs. Brexit is a challenge to that. If Britain gets what is perceived to be a good deal then who else will leave? That’s what’s keeping people like Tusk up at night.
