I think this is what was expected by both sides , testing each other out. I'd expect more of it , it's early days in the process and negotiations . I think it will settle after a while and we might see progress. The EU will have to cede on some issues which affect some member states more than others , so not all member states will be in line all the time with Barnier . I do not think they care a toss about NI and Ireland in all this . There will be casualties and some states will lose more than others and their loss will be explained away in the common good - taking it for the team and all that . Summer break is not far away in the parliaments so less noise from June onwards , in the national elected forums . Just the media in each state voicing their governments view every day after that .
