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

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 🏖.

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.
