At the European Council we will have a surprise guest: the Brexit. I am surprised because we had agreed with the British government and apparently there are problems when approaching the goal. This is how the President of the EU Commission Jean-Claude Juncker referred to the Plenary of the EU Parliament on the next European Council. I will meet the British premier May this evening, the agreement we have reached is the best possible, the only possible, there is no room for maneuver for new negotiations, added Juncker, reiterating the position expressed yesterday by the head of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani in an interview with Corriere.
At the European Council on Thursday and Friday, the British Prime Minister could try to snatch new concessions from the leaders to change the agreement on Brexit as it has no chance of being approved by the British Parliament. That's why yesterday May made a resounding reverse announcing the postponement of the vote.
