There’s more than meets the eye to Selmayr’s backstop slapdown

MPs from the Commons Brexit committee were in Brussels this morning meeting with Martin Selmayr, the commission’s secretary general. Some of those present reported that they left the meeting believing the UK would be able to secure legally-binding concessions on the issue of the backstop.

However, on seeing this account reported, Selmayr has taken to social media to put forward a different account of what took place.
