THE EU has caused Brexit talks to end in DEADLOCK after the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier refused to discuss trade and said there “had not been enough progress to move to the next stage of Brexit talks as the UK wants.”
He said there was “new momentum” in the process but there was still “deadlock” over how much the UK pays when it leaves, which he called “disturbing”.
David Davis, Britain’s Brexit Secretary said he still hoped for the go-ahead for trade talks when EU leaders meet next week.
Talks are now in their fifth round and have yet to show any real progress as the European Union refuses to talk about the future of Britain’s relationship with the bloc.
The EU wants Britain to settle the so-called “Brexit bill” which could be up to £40Bn pounds. It has now been SIXTEEN months since Britain voted to leave the EU, but the work to strike a trading deal has hardly started a “no deal” certainly looks possible.
