Brexit financial services deal 'imminent', says minister

Brexit financial services deal 'imminent', says minister”

May is set to discuss the proposals with her Cabinet on Tuesday, and is likely to attempt to win backing for the plan by warning Brexiteer ministers that they will be personally responsible for a "no-deal" Brexit if they fail to support it and telling remainers that, while she fought for the closest possible alignment until the end, negotiations mean Britain will not be a member of the customs union indefinitely.

British Prime Minister Theresa May raised the possibility of a review mechanism for the backstop in a phone call on Monday with Varadkar that she had sought to update him on the current state of the talks, the Irish government said in a statement.

A No10 spokesman said the British and Irish leaders had agreed the backstop would "a temporary arrangement", but May had emphasised that there would need to be "a mechanism through which the backstop could be brought to an end".

Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph reported that Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has privately demanded the right to pull Britain out of the EU's proposed Irish backstop after just three months.

During a visit to Dublin on Friday, May's de facto deputy David Lidington said the United Kingdom and the European Union are "certainly very close to resolving" the Irish border issue.

However, the newspaper also reported that the new deal will include an "exit clause" created to convince those who support Brexit that remaining in the customs union is only temporary.

A Downing Street spokesman said Sunday the Times report was "speculation" and that negotiations with the European Union are ongoing.

"The EU will write an all-UK customs deal into the legally binding withdrawal agreement so an EU-designed "backstop" treating Northern Ireland differently from the United Kingdom mainland is not required", the Sunday Times said.

According to the newspaper, May is also planning to reach an agreement on the EU-UK post-Brexit economic partnership, as she aspires to ensure free trade between London and Brussels.

Writing in the Sun, Mr Johnson said such a format would be "a Christmas present of the finest old Brussels fudge" meaning Britain getting "absolutely nothing in return" for an "absolutely amazing" £39 billion divorce payment.

Writing in the Sun, Mr Johnson described the arrangement as a "national humiliation", leaving the United Kingdom as "a vassal state, a colony". "We need to stop before it is too late".

British Prime Minister Theresa May has reportedly secured a series of "secret" concessions from the European Union that could allow the whole of the United Kingdom to effectively remain within a customs union with the bloc after Brexit.

"In March the United Kingdom agreed this backstop will apply "unless and until" a close future relationship eliminates any need for border infrastructure or related checks and controls". Under this plan we surrender control to Brussels.

"We are making good progress on the future relationship, and 95% of the Withdrawal Agreement has been settled".
