Where do you stand on the position of articles 218 and 207 of TfEU as applied to A50?

My understanding from discussions with legal experts is we’d have to put in a proposal to the European Council for our withdrawal, via the EU negotiation team, then they’d have to vote by qualified majority to accept it, without a blocking minority representing 35% of the EU population rejecting it, as per any other EU negotiation. In essence, there is already a mechanism to affect a ‘withdrawal of notice’ through the standard negotiation process defined in those two ancillary articles.
