More on the UK's EU commissioner saga - 

Brussels launches legal action against UK over failure to nominate commissioner.

"Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen and her team hope to take office on December 1 — a month behind schedule — but the U.K. has so far refused, despite two written requests by von der Leyen, to put forward a nominee for commissioner.

Britain’s Ambassador to the EU Tim Barrow wrote to the Commission on Wednesday night saying that Britain won't nominate a candidate before the general election on December 12, despite having agreed to do so as part of a deal that postponed the Brexit deadline to January 31. Neither side has made the contents of the letter public."

"The Commission ... considers that the U.K. is in breach of its EU Treaty obligations," said the press statement, while rejecting the British argument that London cannot nominate a commissioner because of the period of election "purdah."
