Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Looking into EU attitudes to this a bit more, it seems very unlikely that any member of the European Council would go so far as to carry out that veto. In fact, the Hungarian foreign minister has already said no. Orbán would have a lot to lose by alienating himself with the other leaders. It's a technical possibility only, and it's not what EU leaders do in any case, decisions generally being arrived at at that level by consensus. And if Johnson were seen to be doing that underhand kind of asking and getting told to shove off, he'd look like an even bigger law-evading dolt than he does now.
