About 5 bluetick PR people tweet screenshots of that paywalled Times article
.. I guess the PR people feel they paid for the article anyway.

Gwen. Your bedtime reading requires more variety. Overheard snatches of conversation could well be misconstrued, and probably are being - deliberately. Any confirmation from any of the parties actually involved? Thought not. Would you, as a trusted chief advisor, discuss such sensitive matters in close proximity to journalists in a public bar? The whole thing stinks to high heaven. But then what do I know.

IDAU. My guess is that post-Brexit negotiations (if there are any) will be as brilliantly successful as the WA. If that is so, we might as well crash and burn at end-March and rise Phoenix-like from the ashes of a EU that is encumbered by useless, incompetent technocrats that everyone here seems anxious to assure me infest Brussels. Selmayr can oversee negotiations as much as he likes. How sweet it would be, however, to refuse negotiations with him as somebody not legitimately elected to the role, quoting the Ombudsmen's report.
Somehow I am not reassured, in fact I'm busily filling my post-Brexit boxes with food cans and trying to persuade my pharmacist to issue me with extra beta blockers. Just in case. I wonder, despite reassurances given here, just how many are taking similar precautions. My son, a HMCE manager who might well know, is also stockpiling.

A quick Google of Selmayr and BBC produced this, as the latest, from 4th Feb. Note that no one elected Selmayr, he was the Chosen One.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47110641

"Labour's Hilary Benn met the Secretary General of the European Commission, Martin Selmayr, in Brussels.

Speaking after Monday's meeting, Mr Benn - who chairs the Brexit select committee - said the EU would be prepared to consider an additional legal protocol to the withdrawal agreement if they were convinced it would help a deal get through Parliament.

But Mr Selmayr later tweeted that when asked if such an assurance would help, the response from MPs was "inconclusive".

He added: "The meeting confirmed that the EU did well to start its no deal preparations in December 2017."

Leave supporter and Tory MP Andrea Jenkyns - who was also at the meeting - tweeted afterwards that Mr Selmayr revealed the EU had not been asked to remove the backstop or re-open negotiations by the British government."

BREXITEERS and Remainers can at least unite, and agree that they, and the UK have a common enemy in the EU. Does he represent what the EU is all about?
