>This is a clear example where Barnier is exceeding his remit, as a civil servant, to only consider the impact to the EU.

I see nutter Brexiteer logic at work here!

Barnier's remit is to only consider the impact on the EU.

Additionally, due to history you will find that many in the EU are less willing to 'bend' the previously agreed rules - thus if the rules (agreed by all Eu28 members remember) say that only Dot-EU domains can be bought or renewed by organizations or people located inside the EU then that is the rule that should/must be implemented.

Interestingly, I note the UK government - in typical Westminster pass the buck fashion, isn't directly saying who should be sued, given it is Westminster who have created the mess, I suggest it is actually the UK government who should be the target of any legal action...
