    Tabloid newspapers saying he was about to be sidelined doesn't mean he was sidelined. The UK caved in the end.

    If you don't believe me, just look at how the fish industry was shafted.

    I suspect the UK government will leak proposals to the press to see if Barnier approves them.

    The question is, is Barnier the most powerful politician in the UK?
