Statement from the European Commission on UK's Commissioner's resignation:

In other news I'm still waiting for George Osborne to turn up and present his resignation too. Why is he hiding, his position has become as untenable as Cameron's was.

someone wrote on another thread that Gideon was waiting for the immodium to kick in grin

Yes, he'd have to go at some point.

I can't see why it had to be immediately - I'd have expected timings of relinquishing posts (as part of an orderly transfer, which is in everyone's interests) to be one of the things that would be thrashed out in pre-A50 negotiations.

Nice to see a more measured tone from Juncker today.

Bye Hill - one less on the gravy train.

Hmm yes, Gideon has been conspicuous by his absence. Immodium comment made me laugh - bet there was plenty of that handed around in the Remain camp yesterday grin

I love that after all the negative comments by Obama he now comes out with 'we're still special friends' or words to that effect. Yeah, right, when he wants something.
