The EU has just issued a strong statement towards the UK regarding Brexit talks
The EU has said that the UK must start taking the ‘negotiations seriously’ and have a position on ‘all issues’.
Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, is understood to be infuriated at Britain’s refusal even to spell out how it thinks its liabilities to the EU should be calculated, let alone put a figure on the final bill.
This is the first time we are seeing the EU’s frustration towards the UK in the Brexit talks.
It’s becoming obvious that the UK and the EU will not agree on everything, and once again this pushes us one step closer to a no deal.
The Brexit secretary, David Davies has said:
“For the UK, the week ahead is about driving forward the technical discussions across all the issues.
“We want to lock in the points where we agree, unpick the areas where we disagree, and make further progress on a range of issues.
“But in order to do that, we’ll require flexibility and imagination from both sides.”
He will add: “Our goal remains the same. We want to agree a deal that works in the best interests of both the EU and the UK, and people and businesses right across Europe.
“And we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get down to work once more.”
