    Davis knows if he gets a good deal, he could be a future prime minister. If not, he and his brexiteer chums are finished.

    Spiegel Online has a poll online on that right now. Currently 8% in favour of accomodating the British; 80% for drawing a hard line.

    First broadside.
    Statement by the European Council 1

    Today, the European Council received a letter from the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, notifying the United Kingdom's intention to leave the European Union. This notification follows the referendum of 23 June 2016 and starts the withdrawal process under Article 50 of the Treaty. We regret that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union, but we are ready for the process that we now will have to follow.

    For the European Union, the first step will now be the adoption of guidelines for the negotiations by the European Council. These guidelines will set out the overall positions and principles in light of which the Union, represented by the European Commission, will negotiate with the United Kingdom.

    In these negotiations the Union will act as one and preserve its interests. Our first priority will be to minimise the uncertainty caused by the decision of the United Kingdom for our citizens, businesses and Member States. Therefore, we will start by focusing on all key arrangements for an orderly withdrawal.

    We will approach these talks constructively and strive to find an agreement. In the future, we hope to have the United Kingdom as a close partner.

    President Tusk has convened the European Council on 29 April 2017.

    1 Following the notification under Article 50 TEU, the member of the European Council representing the withdrawing Member State shall not participate in the discussions of the European Council or in decisions concerning it.

    Next salvo, Tusk himself:

    But paradoxically there is also something positive in Brexit. Brexit has made us, the community of 27, more determined and more united than before. I am fully confident of this, especially after the Rome declaration, and today I can say that we will remain determined and united also in the future, also during the difficult negotiations ahead.

    This means that both I and the Commission have a strong mandate to protect the interests of the 27. There is nothing to win in this process, and I am talking about both sides. In essence, this is about damage control. Our goal is clear: to minimise the costs for the EU citizens, businesses and Member States. We will do everything in our power - and we have all the tools - to achieve this goal. And what we should stress today is that, as for now, nothing has changed: until the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, EU law will continue to apply to - and within - the UK.

    Depressing. I hope Europeans keep in mind that leaving is the wishes of the old in the UK. The young overwhelming voted against this divorce, and its their future.
    If the EU treats the UK well in the next few years, the next generation may well overturn this decision. Treat the UK badly, and they will be driven away.

    Fully in line with the thread title, German left-wing mainstream paper Süddeutsche titles its commentary for the Brexit announcement: "Now the battle begins".
