Oh dear. Poor Theresa May. Her plans are in tatters.

Always be careful before asking the public to give you a mandate for utter lunacy.

EU and Chinese leaders emphasised on Friday (2 June) the need for closer relations in an unstable world.

However, EU-China united on climate, divided on trade
Juncker [.] highlighted that the rule of law and human rights are a “prerequisite” for an attractive and stable investment environment.

The EU executive’s chief also urged China to address its overcapacity in production, especially in the steel sector, which hurts EU companies.

In addition, Juncker said that China should allow European companies to access contracts in China's multi-billion dollar Belt and Road infrastructure investment initiative on the same conditions as Chinese companies.

“This world will be a jungle without multilateral rules,” said the Chinese PM. . . Li Keqiang also turned around the EU's insistence on international rules to demand that China is granted market economy status by the EU, according to World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules.

What Xi Jinping Wants, by Graham Allison
Ask most China scholars whether Xi and his colleagues seriously believe that China can displace the United States as the predominant power in Asia in the foreseeable future. They will duck the question with phrases like “It’s complicated ... on the one hand ... but on the other ...” When I put this question to Lee [Kuan Yew, former leader of Singapore and widely acknowledged geopolitical guru] during a meeting shortly before his death, his eyes widened with incredulity, as if to ask, “Are you kidding?” He answered directly: “Of course. Why not? How could they not aspire to be number one in Asia and in time the world?”

Financial services will not be considered in Brexit trade deal, say updated EU draft guidelines
Following a meeting yesterday, EU diplomats have updated the draft Brexit negotiation guidelines to include a request by France to not “consider financial services in a free trade agreement.”

Repeat:
While the UK has been busy running a general election campaign, the European Commission has been busy publishing a very detailed set of positions on two key Brexit issues - citizens' rights and the Brexit bill.

Germany has a real dilemma in 2017. Keeping its national voters happy while securing the future of the regional EU, and leading the world's G20 which determines the global framework for finance.

An impossible trinity? Danny Rodrik has written on this:
economic globalisation, political democracy, and national determination are mutually irreconcilable. We can have at most two at one time. Democracy is compatible with national sovereignty only if we restrict globalisation. If we push for globalisation while retaining the nation state, we must jettison democracy. And if we want democracy along with globalisation, we must shove the nation state aside and strive for greater international governance.

What will Germany choose? Has Berlin a provisional agenda for the G20, for starters? The UK would certainly be interested.
