EU braces for Brexit talks collapse as in-fighting consumes British government

MPs call on May to appoint'no deal secretary

Despite the enthusiasm of the Danish minister to see negotiations speeded along as they entered their fifth round Monday, European leaders apparently still had no appetite for progress - notwithstanding May's promise of a long transition period and a Brexit "divorce bill" payment, which went down badly with many in the UK.

Meanwhile, bitter anger grows among those opposing hard Brexit, and over the government's undisclosed, studies - which reflect on the real economic impact to be brought upon with Brexit.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to tell parliament that she can "prove the doomsayers wrong" over Brexit.

On the other side, arch-Remainers are using the prospect of a no-deal scenario to argue that Britain can find a way back into the European Union - perhaps under a new form of associate membership, advocated by the former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

While insisting on the fact that Brexit can not be stopped, as it was the people's decision and vote, it is nevertheless becoming harder for the government to hide from what is being seen (on a growing scale) as huge, disastrous negotiation talks. What I can remind you of is that there is a clear sequencing to these talks.

After her speech in the House of Commons, Mrs May will meet with leading industry figures to try and reassure them about the Brexit process. She told ITV that Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond should be sacked for trying to "stall" and obstruct Brexit talks.

Figures in the City have warned that firms will start moving staff and functions out of the United Kingdom if it is not clear by Christmas what transitional arrangements will be in place. This sum is ostensibly being paid to ensure that no other member state in the European Union will lose anything after the Brexit.

But she will tell European leaders: "Achieving that partnership will require leadership and flexibility, not just from us but from our friends, the 27 nations of the EU". But the European Commission responded before May even had the opportunity to address her own Parliament, insisting that the ball, in fact, remained firmly in the UK's court and that it was their turn to make concessions.

May's grip on the party's loyalty has been weakened by its poor performance in the snap election she called for June, which cost the Conservative Party its majority status and strengthened the hand of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The U.K. will publish papers setting out plans for post-Brexit trade and customs regimes later on Monday, May's spokesman James Slack said.

October - Mr Barnier hopes to be able to conclude withdrawal negotiations around this point in order to allow time for them to be ratified before the end of the two-year Article 50 deadline.

The proposals for a customs bill were published alongside those for new trade legislation that would allow Britain to enter into new worldwide free trade agreements once it has left the EU.
