UK still hopeful of moving EU talks onto future ties- junior minister

UK still hopeful of moving EU talks onto future ties- junior minister”

The EU is playing a "game" by stalling Brexit talks in a row over the divorce bill and should reach a "speedy" deal with Britain, Denmark's finance minister has said.

Most recently, calls for Theresa May to step down have been revived as a result of a disastrous speech at the annual Conservative party conference in Manchester.

The row came as the president of the European Council all but ruled out a green light for the opening of talks on Britain's future trade relationship when EU leaders meet next week.

Live in the LBC studio, Iain Dale asked the Prime Minister three times if she could guarantee the status of the 3.2 million European Union citizens now residing in the UK.

This marks the seconds day of talks in the fifth round.

"The UK has a duty to our tax payers to interrogate that European Union position line by line", said Davies.

Her vote, she said, put the interests of her constituents over party discipline and referred to support on the far-right for Britain to walk out without a deal: "I have never agreed to silently acquiesce as our country heads towards a cliff edge", she said, describing that as "wanton economic self-harm".

Businesses have become alarmed by the slow progress of negotiations and the prospect that Britain could leave the trading bloc without a new trading arrangement in place in 2019.

Speaking on BBC One's Andrew Marr Show, Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said any politician watching Mrs May's speech would have sympathised with her, but if she wasn't a "weak prime minister presiding over a deeply divided party" it would not have been an issue.

Kristian Jensen told the Guardian he believed both sides should be ready to move the talks on following the concessions made in Theresa May's speech in Florence last month.

With negotiations to resume on Monday in Brussels and investors rattled by the never-ending Westminster soap opera, May is moving to restore order.

The former Irish prime minister John Bruton voiced the fears of many in Brussels when he warned that the British government was too weak to be taken at its word on anything at the moment.

Britain wants to move to stage two fast, but in order to keep as much leverage as possible in talks on the future relationship aims to delay agreeing the financial settlement as long as possible.

"Instead, with only 18 months of talks left, David Davis' department seems to be working part-time". "I think it's time we actually tackle this issue of leadership and so do many colleagues".

Two Government "white paper" documents yesterday presented proposals for a United Kingdom customs regime and trade policy that can be swiftly put in place in the event of a failure to agree on a new deal with the EU.

Leslie, a former shadow chancellor, told BuzzFeed News: "It might be inconvenient for the prime minister and it might go against government policy, but if she knows that legal advice says the Article 50 notice can be reversed she should stop dodging the question and be straight with Parliament on this".
