Just the usual SNAFU, for the moment, I think, and the sort of free-lancing that remote provincial corners of the French public services seem to be notorious for. I donâ€™t see why the French would want to deny health-care that the UK already pays for, as I understand it.
But no doubt it would need some paperwork to patch it up. So much to do: so little time. I thank my stars that I am no longer a civil servant. There must be a lot of people working a lot of unpaid overtime. Which I never minded much so long as I thought we were achieving something.
But there is also also a lot of posturing and brinkmanship going on. Nothing is over until the fat lady sings. I used to work with M Juncker on an EU working party decades ago when the world was young: I wouldnâ€™t trust him as far I could throw him, but he knows how to make deals.
