    Default The surrender document will be written in French

    “ Mr Macron’s ambassador told the European Commission this morning at a meeting of senior diplomats in Brussels that the deal had to be translated into French before it got to MEPs for scrutiny.

    "A French version of the deal is key for Paris to approve the deal," a diplomatic note seen by The Telegraph revealed.

    Mr Macron, supported by Belgium and the Netherlands, demanded the commission publish emergency no deal plans at an EU summit on Thursday night, despite the risk of destabilising the delicately poised negotiations. ”

    Macron demands Brexit trade agreement is translated into French even if it risks accidental no deal

    Is there a good translation into French of the following - “Britain holds all the cards”?

    Does this imply a good chance of a deal?

    This won't be good for FTSE short positions.

    It certainly would be a surrender document if it gives the French anything they want...the ungrateful sods...
