Brexit talks: David Davis accuses European Union of playing 'time against money'

Brexit talks: David Davis accuses European Union of playing 'time against money'”

Mr Davis said whether "sufficient progress" had been made was "up to them, not up to us". "They're trying to play time against money", Mr Davis told the BBC's Andrew Marr show.

During a tense press conference held by Davis and Michel Barnier of the European Commission Thursday, Barnier repeatedly voiced his frustration with what he called a lack of "any decisive progress on any of the principal subjects" such as a financial settlement, citizens' rights, and future access to the single market.

Mr. Bolton said he believed that a swift exit from the bloc would put Britain in a stronger position to establish herself and strengthen her economy outside of the European Union, adding that it would provide businesses with certainty.

The "strict position" was that there was "no enforceable" legal basis for the United Kingdom to pay money to Brussels but "we are a country that meets its global obligations - but they have got to be there".

"It's a two-year negotiation period".

Comparing Brussels' demands to a hotel bill presented to a guest on checking out, Mr Davis said: "We are going through it line by line and they are finding it hard because we have got good lawyers".

Prime Minister Theresa May is set to approve paying as much as 50 billion pounds ($64.8 billion) for leaving the European Union in a bid to kickstart trade talks, but won't disclose details until after the Conservative Party conference in October, The Sunday Times reported, citing a source. "The story is completely wrong".

Britain's government said this week that it wouldn't pay into the EU's budget after Brexit, slated for March 2019.

Britain has said it is prepared to meet its worldwide obligations. They may not be legal, they may be political or moral.
