4th Round of Brexit negotiations - 25th September 2017
David Davies and Michel Barnier met again today for the 4th round of the Brexit trade negotiations.
Following Mrs. May's speech in Florence last Friday, it was hoped that the negotiations could start to progress with regards to trade, but, as expected, Michel Barnier is again prevaricating. Now he wants more detail from Mrs. May. He wants clarification on the rights of E.U. citizens in the U.K., what will happen to the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland and the question of the European Court's supremacy.
This discussion will go on for ever and ever. I fear we must leave without a trade deal. That would be the best outcome because you can't negotiate with people who don't want to negotiate. We are just a cash cow to be milked by the E.U. as they see it.
