Hopes of a bold commission likely to be dashed as changing of the guard hinges upon compromise between Paris and Berlin

It was the morning after the night before. Following a marathon six hours of debate in Brussels, Britain had been granted a Brexit extension to 31 October – an end-date that none of the EU’s leaders’ had wanted.

What had emerged that April evening was a hard-fought compromise between the French president Emmanuel Macron’s demand for a short Brexit delay and the German chancellor Angela Merkel’s wish for the UK to be given a year to think again.

Pair attempt to reach summit but are intercepted by police and told to turn back

Two Swiss mountaineers landed a small plane less than 400 metres from the summit of Mont Blanc before heading for the top of Europe’s tallest peak with police in pursuit.

The pair landed the aircraft 4,450 metres (14,600 feet) up the mountain in the French Alps on Tuesday in an incident described as a “provocation” by Eric Fournier, the mayor of the nearby Chamonix resort.

‘Orchard of France’ is badly hit by extreme weather that has killed two people

France will declare a state of natural disaster after rain and hail storms lashed a swathe of the south-east on Saturday, devastating crops.

The flash storms, which brought hailstones as big as pingpong balls to some areas, killed two people in France and Switzerland, and injured at least 10 others.

Amélie de Montchalin says UK will leave EU on 31 October without ‘new political line’

France’s state secretary for European affairs has confirmed that the EU27 are not prepared to reopen the Brexit withdrawal agreement, and that without a “new political line” in the UK or a second referendum, Britain must expect to leave the bloc on 31 October.

On the eve of a two-day working visit to London, Amélie de Montchalin also told the Guardian that France regarded the €39bn financial settlement Britain has agreed to pay the EU as part of the exit deal as a matter of international law.

S'il succède à Theresa May, Boris Johnson refusera de payer le Brexit


http://www.lefigaro.fr/flash-eco/s-il-succede-a-theresa-may-boris-johnson-refusera-de-payer-le-brexit-20190609

La facture s'élève à quelque 45 milliards d'euros. Dans l'entourage du président Macron, on prévient que cela équivaudrait «à un défaut sur sa dette souveraine, avec les conséquences que l'on connaît».
