Welcome to the EU/UK dominated Brexit Galaxy of Spin and Counter-Spin. A crazy old place. The galactic atmosphere is such these days that the dimensions of truth are elastic; at times, distorted.
Take the arguments this weekend over whether the Downing Street dinner last Wednesday at which Theresa May hosted European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was a complete disaster or not.
Not at all, insists Downing Street.
But according to an EU diplomat, speaking to Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and thereafter hitting Twitter and headlines across the UK, they went "badly, really badly".
The article goes on to say that this is all spin, I'm not so sure.
One of the reasons we're leaving the EU is that we simply don't believe in "The Project" of "ever closer union." They see things differently to us on the continent and we're never been happy bed fellows with them.
Perhaps it may all work out in the end, but we've already given them a major concession by saying we're leaving the single market, that should have been up for negotiation. I hope we don't give them any more...
