A game theory expert claimed that the European Union’s Brexit tactics for applying a “delegation game” have enabled them to play their cards in a very good way in discussions with Britain.
Marcus Schreiber, founding partner and chief executive officer of TWS Partners, who also supported companies to apply gaming theory, analyzed the Brexit process so far.
The game theory expert claims that the technologies used by the European Union made it easy for EU parent Brexit negotiator Mr Barnier to be “tough” in negotiations.
He told Express.co.uk: “I call that delegation game. In the negotiations that are a power game, you must break the engagement.” This is what I have to achieve, if we do not achieve it, it will break down. “[1

“In theory when two cars rush to each other and you say” I will not move “, the best way to signal it is to say” I’m throwing out my wheel. “And then I can only go in one direction. If you have the strength to control your wheel, in the last second, if it’s life and death, I’ll move. “
He added:” The European Union played the delegation game by saying to Michel Barnier, “that here’s your limit of competence, you can not agree on anything else. “So he’s in a very comfortable position to say no no.
” Even if he said yes, that would not mean anything. In Ireland, Ireland has veto and other veto on other matters. So it’s easy for him to be tough. As perceived very often in the British as arrogance. But he is not in position.
“They put the negotiation team in a way,” our guy has no authority to say yes beyond that line. “
Schreiber explained that this was a” classic “bargaining style between Western and Eastern delegations.
He said, “If you see a Western delegation, the boss is in the middle, and the more you go out just the experts, then you speak in the middle.”
“Asian delegation puts the lowest ranked person who can speak in the middle, and the leaders go up. And the real decision maker is in the next room. If you are in talks in five hours, someone who says it is yes is talking to someone who has no power to say, yes, given that you want a deal – you give away you give away you give away
Schreiber added that the “decision maker” would only come in if the deal was close to completion.
The gaming expert said that Michel Barnier’s job would only get the British side “close enough” to an agreement
He said : “This is on the European side, how they played their cards in a very good way.
Schreiber insisted that Mrs May could have used a similar technique in negotiations, but the British set up was not the same, “that’s why Theresa May went self” and was “kind to talk to a chair that did not say yes “.
Prime Minister May has fought to secure a Brexit agreement with the European Union with the Irish border remains an important focal point in discussions.
Theresa M ay has been accused of making a series of compromises in negotiations with the European Union so far, including the Brexit negotiation process, agreeing a divorce settlement and securing an implantation period in place until the end of 2020.
Irish border remains the most important position in the Brexit negotiations, with the prime minister deciding the EU’s proposed backstop threatening to create a border in the Irish Sea.
This week’s ministers invited the Whitehall Tax Agency to see an almost complete draft of the proposed EU recall agreement.
The document, which they saw confidentiality and did not receive copies of, is supposed to contain “95 percent” of the exit agreement that Mrs May says has been agreed with Brussels. But it is believed not to have included the proposed Irish border solution.
