No EU Deal is definitely a bad deal & threatens economic stability

The Union Flag and European Union flags fly near the Elizabeth Tower housing the Big Ben bell during the anti Brexit'People's March for Europe, in Parliament Square in central London Britain

With political intrigue overshadowing the fact Britain has just 18 months to get a Brexit deal, the fifth round of negotiations starts in Brussels on Monday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is urging the European Union to show "leadership and flexibility" in unblocking Brexit talks, saying the ball is in the bloc's court.

May's office said she stressed the importance of engaging with the business community to design the proposed implementation arrangements, and promised to have continued meetings with a wide variety of business voices.

I've done a load of deals over the years and when you say something, there has to be real fear on the other side that if they don't play ball you'll carry through with your threat.

The U.K is increasingly anxious to move talks on to discussing future trade relations, but so far the European Union says there hasn't been "sufficient progress" on the major divorce terms — the size of the Brexit bill, the status of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland and the rights of 3 million European Union citizens living in Britain and 1 million Britons in other member states.

Regional politicians in Wales and Scotland have also railed against the bill, claiming the new law was a power grab by Westminster that is against their interests.

The UK government is desperate for the European commission to conclude that enough progress has been made on issues relating to the divorce settlement, such as financial liabilities, Northern Ireland and citizens' rights.

The EU27's negotiating guidelines for the two-year Brexit talks stipulate that they must take place in two phases: separation and "orderly withdrawal", followed by future relationship.




In a foreword to the customs paper, Finance Minister Philip Hammond also underlined the importance of a transition period after Brexit to allow businesses to adjust to new rules and avoid a "cliff-edge" scenario.

Winter/spring - If talks are proceeding to plan, negotiators can be expected to be getting into the nitty-gritty on how future trade relations will work while ironing out final details of the divorce deal.

A NEW CABINET split has emerged over the Brexit transition deal as Michael Gove is pushing for the United Kingdom to be free from fishing laws as soon as we quit the EU.

'And as we look forward to the next stage, the ball is in their court.

Mrs May will make a statement to MP's in the House of Commons to update them on her speech in Florence which was welcomed by European Union leaders.

Responding, Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn accused the prime minister of wasting 16 months since the referendum with no progress being made.

British Prime Minister Theresa May supported the move and a government source said the two had behaved "totally irresponsibly".

Ms Thornberry told BBC One's Sunday Politics that it would be good for the economy to "stay as close as we can" to the EU. "We are always here and we are ready".
