Re: borders to be regularised or smoothed out by mutual agreement

Thank you for the reference. However the article concludes (my emphasis):

- The council overwhelmingly decides by consensus, which means the **UK is on the winning majority side almost 87% of the time**.

- The UK government might be more willing than other governments to publicly register its opposition to EU decisions.

- The data does not tell us what went on behind the scenes on each of these issues, and hence how much the UK disagreed with the majority position when it recorded its opposition – perhaps the UK was on the winning side on all the key issues it really cared about in this period.
