Brexit: Deal or no deal? - TDS

Former British PM calls for new referendum on Brexit

In a press conference alongside Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, Barnier said there must be mutual "respect" in terms of making decisions if negotiations are to progress.

Mr Raab repeated his threat not to pay the £39 billion bill if a UK-EU trade deal isn't agreed, telling MPs: "If one party fails to honour its side of that overall bargain, there will be consequences for the deal as a whole - and that includes the financial settlement".

The EU has been clear since March that it wants full autonomy and control over how United Kingdom banks operate in the bloc after Brexit, rejecting proposals for joint oversight and insisting that the system USA banks are subjected to, known as equivalence, is all that's on offer.

Having only taken the position less than three weeks ago, Mr Raab put a courageous face on and told his negotiating partner: "We have work to do".

"That is why I think there should be a People's Vote on the final deal, and why I am sending best wishes and good luck to the campaigners who will be stepping up the pressure over the summer".

The EU would not delegate "excises duty collection to a non-member", he said.

Former Brexit Secretary David Davis and former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned earlier this month in protest over May's Brexit plan, known as the Chequers Plan.

Mr Hammond also ruled out extending the Article 50 process to give more time to negotiate withdrawal from the European Union, after the Irish Government said it would back such a move. But he had added: "On our future economic relationship it comes as no surprise that finding common ground between the EU27 and the United Kingdom is more hard".

The poll also showed that the United Kingdom remained divided on the merits of leaving the European Union with 50 per cent voting to remain in the EU in any new referendum.

"We have no objection in principle to this", Barnier said.

"In sum, the United Kingdom has set out our plans in detail".

Barnier countered: "It is quite clear that what has been agreed in December and agreed in March has been agreed for good", referring to the deals May signed up to with European Union leaders.

"We can all see it's going to be an uphill task to persuade the EU-27", McGuinness said.

That concept is about making sure that we will be able to continue to do the things that are necessary once we have left the European Union, if we leave without a deal.' United Kingdom boss of Amazon Doug Gurr has raised fears of riots and looting within a fortnight of Brexit day next March if trade is left in limbo and food starts running out.

Some countries, particularly the UK's closest trading partners, want questions about the future economic relationship left open, to be worked out during the 21-month transition period after Britain has left.
