Juncker switches to English to talk about #Brexit in his State of the Union speech #SOTEU - says again how much he regrets the departure of the British. (Remember: As chief exec of the EU club, he lost a key member on his watch)
‘It is #brexit which is making the border more visible in Northern Ireland, not the EU’ says Juncker
Juncker: “The UK will never be an ordinary third country for us. The UK will always be a very close neighbour in political, economic and security terms. In the past months when we needed unity, Britain was at our side.”
Juncker “We owe it to our citizens to ensure the UK withdrawal is orderly and with stability afterwards. It will not be the commission that will stand in the way of this” #Brexit
(ie it’s not our fault if it all goes wrong!)
Juncker: “If you leave the Union, you are of course no longer part of our single market, and certainly not only in the parts of it you choose.” #brexit #SOTEU

As #Brexit talks go on & become ever more bitter, I’ve been listening to concerns of Brits living in continental EU. Don’t dismiss them & assume they’re happy, retired on the 🏖. Listen to them in this @SkyNews THREAD. Many different worries but all in limbo, stressed, forgotten

In relation to #SalisburyChemicalAttack this is interesting. Senior Russian official says #Novichok isn’t subject to Chemical Weapons Convention, when asked if stockpiles had been destroyed. With this statement he confirms what Russia hasn’t done hitherto - #Novichok exists
Incidentally, I am told that #Novichok DOES fall under the Chemical Weapons Convention despite Russian claims to the contrary. Awaiting something official from @OPCW though.
The @OPCW worked with Russia to destroy ‘all’ its chemical weapon stockpiles. This was completed in Sept last year. But now Russia saying #Novichok group of agents not subject to that programme of stockpile destruction.
