Brexit: UK and European Union negotiations to start on Monday

Freda Brock | 17 June, 2017, 16:25

While European leaders try to gauge what to expect from the Brexit talks due to begin in Brussels on Monday, May is so weakened that her own Brexit strategy is the subject of public debate in her own party, and by her potential allies.

Asked whether Mr Davis had shifted his position, a British official referred to a statement released by Mr Davis's ministry on Friday which repeated calls for the withdrawal terms and future relationship to be "agreed alongside each other".

But the Government signalled it will continue to push back against the Commission's stance by declaring the UK's withdrawal and future relationship with the European Union are "intimately linked".

Sir Keir said the loss of Mrs May's overall majority in the June 8 General Election meant Parliament could no longer be "marginalised" in the Brexit process and "appropriate steps" must be taken to prepare for a Labour administration to take over negotiations at any stage if Mrs May's Government falls. "We believe that the withdrawal process can not be concluded without the future relationship also being taken into account".

"But this is a decision for the British parliament and the British people on whether they want this door to be wide open again or whether, after making such a decision, they say, 'Let's consider how we can use some portions of this openness, but others perhaps not."' Gabriel said.

Sony can't compete with the Xbox One X
The project will be named from now on Xbox One X and it will cost $499, being the premium option available in the Xbox series. When asked by PC Gamer whether this could also extend to PC, Xbox boss Phil Spencer suggested this could well be the case.

Ms May has been under pressure since the election cost her her majority to consider "softer" Brexit options than the clean break she proposed from the EU single market and customs union. "That is why we are pushing ahead with negotiations on Monday".

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has long argued that the initial talks should center on brokering deals on citizens' rights, money owed by the United Kingdom and the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. "It's our dominating theme today and will remain so over the weekend as bodies are recovered and we start to get a sense of the scale of the tragedy".

"All the options are balanced and come with obligations", an European Union official working on Brexit said, noting that May had seemed to be looking for a sweeping free trade deal like that agreed a year ago with Canada but that some of those calling for "soft" Brexit cited arrangements such as those with Norway and Turkey.

Addressing her party on Monday after one of its most memorable electoral failures, May said she would take a broader, more consultative approach to the Brexit talks.

He also pointed out that three months after Article 50 had been triggered, formal discussions had yet to start.
