Article 50 infographics – updated to January

A quiet month in Article 50 land, marked only by various lower-level talks and by the EU working through their approval process for the Phase 2 mandate.

The updated infographics don’t have much to show, although I’ve made my first call on removing a barrier to reaching a deal, namely over sequencing. However, this is more than replaced by the growing unease on Tory backbenches, which could cause much difficulty for the British government. That said, the momentum is much more behind a deal than a no-deal and will remain so until Phase 2 begins in earnest.
