Negotiations Continue As UK And EU Prepare For A Post-Brexit World
"And the European Union have begun what could be the final day of talks on a post Brexit trade deal, with the prospect of the two sides reaching an agreement fast receding There's no sign yet that talks overnight have made progress in breaking the deadlock. Key areas of difference include fishing and how closely Britain should align with EU rules in the future. But Kevin Connolly in Brussels says today's deadline is by no means set in stone. The way the deadline was phrased was rather curious. I think they didn't say on Sunday, we will decide whether or not There's absolutely any point toe absolutely any further conversation. They said something to the effect that it will be a time when you would decide on the faith of the talks. So it's perfectly
E.U. issues its first rule-of-law report, angering leaders of Hungary and Poland
"European Union has published today an audit of rule of law issues across its 27 member states, the first of what will be an annual review of Thie State of the blocks Democratic institutions as expected. There is criticism of judicial changes made by nationalist government's in Poland and Hungary in recent years, but concerns We're also raised about corruption in six countries, including Bulgaria. On DH Malta On Tuesday, The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for the report's author, The You commissioner for values very Jehovah to be sacked All Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly joins us now from Brussels and Kevin just on hungry. How badly does the country come out of this report? There's nothing that will be unfamiliar to the Hungarian government in the charges, but they are not familiar concerns about the limitations of the freedom of the media and determination by the Hungarian government has seen from Brussels. To exercise undue influence of judicial process so that in effect the court system, the legal system in Hungary becomes less free. So it's not the freshness Of the charges, which will annoy Viktor Orban, the Hungarian leader. It is the fact that as you would have expected, they are front and center in the presentation of this case on the really fear in Hungary and in Poland, too. To a slightly lesser extent is the underlying threat, which is still present in this document, which is gaining currency and Brussels as an idea that if you really want to do something about this is the European Union. You have to link the spending of you funds from Brussels with adherence to basic rules about the rule of law, the freedom of the justice system on the freedom of the press. That's what really angers Viktor Orban on DH angers the Polish government, too. That's what they will always come out on the attack. That's why, of course, he's asking for the sacking or via your over the vice president, the European Commission. He certainly won't get that. But he wants to make this for his own domestic political audience about it about Hungary being under attack, rather than hungry, being criticized for falling short of international standards. How likely are other, You country's Tio follow up on on that threat. I think at some point, that idea is gonna have to work its way onto the political agenda. Because at some point I think the European Commission is going to be forced to conclude that persuasion simply doesn't work in these kind of cases. Viktor Orban Thie nationalist government in Poland, They're both going to pursue the same argument. That the European Commission doesn't understand what it's like to emerge from decades of Communist domination that certain measures are necessary that Poland and Hungary are not France and Belgium and the things of different so as long as The countries who are accused pushback in those terms. I think eventually the European Commission will be forced to acknowledge that it's going to have to use any financial levers at its disposal. It won't be quick because nothing involving the European Commission of the European Union is quick. But I think it's some point. It's inevitable on just briefly. The other countries mentioned I included Bulgaria immortal one of the concerns there is that about corruption. It's about both corruption and about shortcomings in the judicial process. In this special mention, I suppose for Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovakia who make both this and here's the takeaway from this. This is a 27 member institution. About a quarter of the member states, mainly former Communist states. About a quarter off them come in for some kind of criticism, so a bracing dose of freshness.

Playing great in Bryce is has been chicken as as well. The numbers are pretty similar. Yeah I mean I guess you know I guess You know in the big spot grace's obviously he's great. I think he's content ten and the number to roll. I do think he's fine playing coming in. Maybe not taking the pressure up being the number one so yeah I guess it would be. I guess in the big game it would it would be volume off right. That would be my guess. But I don't know but I either way it's a good problem to have because you know you need so you need to go goalies right. I mean there was there was some stat that You team has never won the Stanley Cup and seems never won. The Stanley Cup with a with a goalie played more than fifty games in the regular season. Maybe in recent memory or think it was a little bit more common back. Then we're gonNA always play more. I think over right where arrest is important totally so yeah I mean I think I think it's a great system and then You know apparently they got this guy. I in Russia who who is this goalie in Russia. That doesn't WANNA come over. But the islanders have his rights Seventy no that guy much. I mean we're not Algebra hockey in their ball Sorkin or something like that working.

But you really out what do you think of the play lately? It's just it's fascinating. I can't I can't believe.

They'd be in for every to a hater. The last eighteen games, whatever it's band is filthy. So if he gets hot in the playoffs, maybe they beat Tampa. It's gonna take a kind of an incredible team effort and hot goaltending for them. If they end up beating Toronto if they do get Tampa to beat them. It's going to be tough. But the season's been wild ride for the Bruins. I think the fans the fans are fired up because not many people saw it happen. You guys said enough about it. I'm just going to rehash the fact that kassy's on an unbelievable job. And even when they went down with some injuries on the back end. I think they had five or six regular defense out at one point in the season and actually came into town and play the coyotes beat them two to one and the Boston beat the coyotes two to one and when you can when you can kind of stay afloat going through all those injuries and still win games. And now, of course, guys are getting more and more healthy. Yeah. I think they're they're going to be a tough team to beat come playoff time. So I commend them and everything they've done. And looking at the other side of teams going in different directions. Detroit Redwings, man, they'd had an absolute disaster of game. I Canadian Canadians Tuesday night it was an eight to one final. They would. They would just terrible. What stood out was the post game comments? What's nNcholas Krahn while he's basically the elder spokesman for the Red Wings. I'd never seen a guy. He kept it together. But you could see the anger just coming off. He spoke for about two or three minutes and just about the F and how you even professions. You still have to show up. You still have to play what's his name block and come on Dodd's unlock and friends. Nielsen the coach they're all coming talking. But they were saying these same things biz about effort, and you gotta show up in these type of things I think you hit before coach gets fired Blazel been pretty good their first year. He made the playoffs by the last three is they haven't done anything. And they don't have a great Ross. I mean, you can't really expect them to do too much. But you wonder if the kids are gonna get Greece for this guy. It's it's Ford season. It's it's been rough. When you think he's for the long haul. What they got some big decisions to make their but Nichols Grahn wall. I know him and just the ultimate pro we say about a lot of guys on here. But I mean, he's been there for a long time and learn from some incredible players and leaders, and he kinda knows that it's just unacceptable when lack of effort is wire losing. And that's not the only reason they're losing their overmatched roster wise, but still you still can give that effort. So for him not to see that after playing with Lidstrom playing fall ski Shelley. Oh, Syn, you know, Zada Aberg KOMAL seen everyone and he's seen how it was done. How it's supposed to be done. So it probably discussed him. And then I don't really blame them. But having said that the the the Redwings need to have a good draft. That's kinda where they're headed. Who knows? Maybe they end up getting the first pick Jack us being there. It'd be nice. Also that finished getting a couple Cocco was his name Cupo Cockell a love in that name. Even if it's on incorrect, but he's kind of firing the draft boards to where it's not necessarily done deal.
