UK Brexit chief wants action on all exit issues

Theresa May

But that deadline is now looking increasingly hard to meet, given the widening gap between the two sides over money, the sequencing of trade talks and also the role of the European Court of Justice. As far as this government is concerned there shouldn't be an economic border. But for the rest of us, Brexit is beginning to look like a classic case of a mountain giving birth to a mouse. As the next round of divorce talks gets under way, shifting domestic politics in Britain will once again hang over the negotiations. The change in the policy comes days before the next round of Brexit.

No doubt pressure from the Tory right and the gutter tabloids has made this a hazardous option for the Prime Minister and her less xenophobic Cabinet colleagues, who themselves may also see European Union residents in Britain as a "bargaining chip" to be used cynically in the negotiations.

"Their leader can't say they would end unlimited freedom of movement, they can't decide whether we are leaving the single market and they have no vision for what Britain should look like outside the European Union", a spokesman said.

The Labour Party is now making a clear and more realistic choice, which Nigel Farage was quick to dismiss as political betrayal.

Labour would keep the United Kingdom in the EU single market and customs union for a transitional period after leaving the EU, the party has said. "With every week that an agreement on transitional agreements is postponed, its value is diminished", argues the Times.

But Starmer and Labour have concluded that, rather than trying to seek bespoke systems to work through what will be - in theory at least - a fairly short period of time, it is preferable to accept the terms as they are.

"May would have a huge dilemma if a majority of MPs were to back Labour's policy", said Rahman at Eurasia Group.

"There are Tory MPs, who believe it's the right thing to do".

Field said: "There are a lot of people around who are wolves in sheep's clothing - their main intention is to keep Britain in the EU".

"We want to lock in the points where we agree, unpick the areas where we disagree, and make further progress on a whole range of issues", he said.

European Union officials have been complaining that the British side has been weaseling out of its obligations, failing to address three key points in previous Brexit talks. Critics describe this as a "fax democracy", because it entails remaining subject to the rules of the European Union without any say in setting the rules.

Dublin said on Monday much of the future border arrangements between Northern Ireland and Ireland could be solved before Brexit talks enter the next phase. "The government were wrong to rule out staying in the single market, it's time for them to reverse gear".

UK Brexit Secretary David Davis hit back at the criticism while in Brussels. "Given that UK-EU combined import/export trade totaled 553 billion pounds (713 billion USA dollars) previous year, this certainty would be hugely advantageous for British businesses and consumers", said Starmer.

In response, Brexit secretary David Davis said Britain was ready to "roll up its sleeves" to get a deal. Davis and Barnier will then close the round of negotiations on Thursday.
