EU Reaches Out to UK Opposition, May's Job Uncertain


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. "We should have no fears about a "no deal" scenario".

The EU and Britain clashed Monday after British Prime Minister Theresa May said the ball was in the EU's court as Brexit negotiations entered a critical fifth round.

She has endured a particularly hard stretch, with the disappointing party conference speech followed by a claim by former party chairman Grant Shapps that he had a list of 30 legislators who wanted May to step down.

Not one of over a dozen senior European Union officials and diplomats who spoke to Reuters expect the summit to launch talks on future trade, few rule out that May's counterparts may give her some assurance of doing so soon - and even offer some limited exploration of the transition period she has asked for.

At next week's summit, the leaders of the 27 remaining European Union states will decide whether sufficient progress has been made on divorce issues like expats' rights, the border with Ireland and Britain's financial settlement to allow talks to proceed to their second phase. The news is a setback for Mrs May, who presented the deal as a breakthrough for a successful Brexit, particularly as US President Donald Trump was an advocate of Britain leaving the EU. One suggestion, which did not command majority support, was that at the European council summit, the EU would offer to discuss between themselves how a future trade relationship would work or open "scoping" discussions about a transition period, in an attempt to encourage Britain to be more forthcoming.

Ms Chapman said she did not want a Norway-style settlement which involved ongoing contributions to the EU's budget.

He said neither said will win "100 per cent" and instead called for a political compromise to be struck. He said American, Japanese and Chinese banks use London to engage in considerable financial activity with the rest of the continent and that they are nervous about the final outcome of the negotiations.

At the moment, they're dragging this into a punishment Brexit. This year Jensen was the subject of a public rebuke by the British ambassador to Denmark, Dominic Schroeder, after he said of Brexit: "There are small nations and there are countries that have not yet realised they are small nations".

But she faces more disquiet in her Conservative Party over the negotiations and how a future relationship should look.

It has also sharpened the focus of both sides of the Brexit debate in the UK. "I am sure that we will get a positive response because we are striving to conclude not only the best possible agreement for us but also the best deal for our European friends,".

United Kingdom business has been calling for this for months, even as recently as the Party Conference season when a number of business groups have said their members fear for the future of the economy while no clear plan for our exit is being discussed.
