EU citizens’ rights: The ‘fair and serious’ offer that wasn’t

Yesterday Theresa May presented European leaders in Brussels with the general principles of what she regards a “fair and serious” offer on EU citizens’ rights. 

Can a hard Brexit be averted?

The unfolding events are very difficult to read, and any reading is likely to be out of date even before it is written. This is where I think we are currently.

Ireland’s Soft Brexit
