As predicted, the EU remain unimpressed. The European commission has just put out this statement after the lunchtime meeting.

President Jean-Claude Juncker and Prime Minister Johnson had a working lunch today in Luxembourg. The aim of the meeting was to take stock of the ongoing technical talks between the EU and the UK and to discuss the next steps.

President Juncker recalled that it is the UKís responsibility to come forward with legally operational solutions that are compatible with the withdrawal agreement. President Juncker underlined the commissionís continued willingness and openness to examine whether such proposals meet the objectives of the backstop. Such proposals have not yet been made...The EU27 remain united.
