Should Brits vote to leave the European Union, it would set a precedent. The UK would be the first member state to exit the EU. And many British civil servants working in Brussels would have to pack their bags and leave.
British Prime Minister Theresa May could bulk up the amount that Britain pays as it leaves the EU, in a bid to move talks on to trade. But senior leave campaigners have attached a condition to the money.
Brexit hasn't even happened and already Brussels is dividing up the post-divorce spoils. Meanwhile, hypocrisy remains rampant in British politics and Russia sends its love to Theresa May.
In a Brexit-related move, officials have decided where to relocate the European Medicines Agency, the EU's drug agency. The decision, plus the relocation of the EBA banking agency, will affect many UK-based employees.
Negotiators have given Britain until the end of the month to make headway on a divorce settlement that includes a hefty bill, citizens' rights and the Irish border. Leaders in Europe are increasingly losing patience.
