Barnier: Months Before Trade Talks Can Start

Barnier top lines:

  • Welcomes “new dynamic” of May’s Florence speech
  • Says “we have had a constructive week”, “useful”
  • But… “we are not yet there in terms of sufficient progress”
  • It may take “weeks or maybe even months” before EU will agree to trade talks
  • Barnier still insisting ECJ must have “indispensable” role in post-Brexit disputes with EU citizens

A warmer Barnier today, but still tediously intransigent…

Quote of the Day

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
