19.02.2020 | The EU is terrified by Britain's new strategy for Brexit talks
by John Longworth - The Telegraph

We are approaching the moment when the UK and EU will lock antlers to work through their future relationship. The “rules” of the game are supposedly set out in the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) and the Political Declaration (PD), except very sensibly, both sides will play big picture diplomacy in order to re-interpret, re-cast and re-negotiate, and are already redefining the rules of the game.

Which definitely means no role for the European Court of Justice. The government seem to be making the right noises so far.
