I liked ND's humorous post of Saturday, so it got me thinking, what was discussed, what happened?
And here it is interesting a swift search reveals hundreds of articles about the meeting happening. Plenty speculating what will happen, how nice the French President's place is in the South of France and all sorts of other 5p per word guff.
But nothing, nothing on what actually transpired at all, post the event.
So why is this? Most obviously it is because neither Macron or May have issued any kind of statement or press release.
But why have the media not insisted on one? Perhaps they have, only ineffectively.
I can see that the chances of progress were near zero. Macron has an easy view of Brexit, stay in the single market and betray the populists. Or a Hard Brexit to teach the populists across Europe a lesson...perhaps there is a modern re-working of an old quote that may sum this up.
So May's recent position of a kind of half-in half-out model will be lost on Macron who if anything thinks the Michel Barnier is a bit wimpy in the negotiations.
With a lack of meeting of minds, maybe it should not surprise us that the meeting has quietly been forgotten already.
