Brexit - UK Politics News

After Brexit, the EU wants to wind down in stages all the rebates, including those that the Netherlands or Denmark enjoy. The bloc’s executive European Commission has proposed to have none in the next common budget for 2021-2024.

“I think that even for the pleasant but improbable case that the British wish to remain… then in my budgetary framework I would stick to the phased ending of rebates. The rebates, in a family of 27, are no longer appropriate.”Continue reading

Cassis did not rule out the possibility of striking a deal with the EU, Switzerland’s biggest trade partner, by the end of this year, though he reiterated that the labour rules remain a non-negotiable “red line” for the Swiss side.Continue reading

Theresa May - UK POLITICS NEWS

With just over six months until Britain leaves the European Union, Theresa May has yet to reach a deal with Brussels on the terms of the divorce, and her plan for future trade ties has been rebuffed by both the EU and many lawmakers in her own party. Keir Starmer said: “Everybody recognises the talks are going badly and it looks as though we’re heading for a bad deal or even no deal. We, the Labour Party, are going to vote down a bad deal or we’re going to vote down no deal because that is not good for our country nor is it what people voted for.” Continue reading

Sadiq Khan - London Mayor - UK Politics News Headlines

London mayor Sadiq Khan has called for another referendum on Britain’s European Union membership, saying the prime minister’s handling of Brexit negotiations had become “mired in confusion and deadlock” and was leading the country down a damaging path. “The government’s abject failure – and the huge risk we face of a bad deal or a no-deal Brexit – means that giving people a fresh say is now the right – and only – approach left for our country,” London mayor Sadiq Khan said.

It’s about the policy. It’s not about changing prime minister. It’s about chucking Chequers,” Boris Johnson is reported to have told the newspaper at an event in Washington D.C. in the United States.
