Setting out vision for future ties, May presses Brexit plans

Financial Workers Put In The Hours As Days Shorten

The so-called Brexit White Paper has already shaken up Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership following resignations of her Brexit minister David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who disagreed with what is seen as a much closer alignment with the European Union (EU) than desired, as it would reportedly make trade deals with other countries more hard.

The advertising industry was also concerned that Britain's position as a £120bn-a-year global hub for the sector would be threatened unless it could hire talent at will from all over the world.

Ireland's foreign minister has welcomed the UK's Brexit White Paper and described it as "a step towards a much softer Brexit".

Its eventual publication on Thursday was branded an "utter shambles" by Labour as farcical scenes saw the House of Commons sitting suspended.

"Having said that, I think there will be an attempt to try and accommodate the British thinking in a way that protects the integrity of the single market and the customs union".

Raab, May's new Brexit minister, will suggest that such criticism was not justified.

He said: "It delivers a deal that is good for the United Kingdom, and good for our European Union friends".

Britain would leave the EU's Common Agricultural Policy and Common Fisheries Policy.

Once the paper is published, it will be looked over by the EU.

Mr Raab would only comment: "This is a negotiation".

Broadcasters have also expressed concern that UK-based worldwide business in their industry worth £1bn a year is threatened by Brexit and there are no solutions offered by the white paper. "It's therefore regrettable and frustrating that this approach has been dropped before even making it to the negotiating table".

Lorraine Johnston, a lawyer at law firm Ashurst, said Britain was proposing a form of equivalence which gives it what looks like a seat at the European regulatory table, even if they can not order from the menu.

Andrew Bridgen, who has submitted a letter of no confidence in Mrs May, added he and "many" of his colleagues have "grave concerns" about the plan.

Mr Coveney said "contradictions" remain within the UK's position and the EU's red-lines.

"This does not respect the referendum result".

The government has stressed its intent to conclude a new accord with the European Union to cover manufactured goods.

The government, which has not provided details on how migration arrangements will work after Brexit, has promised to bring out a white paper on the subject in the next few months.

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", Mr Trump said on Thursday at a news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Starmer directed the blame at Raab, who took up the role of chief UK Brexit negotiator this week, telling him: "He's not got off to a very good start. It is not something I would vote for nor is it what the British people voted for".

"The people voted to break it up so I would imagine that's what they would do, but maybe they're taking a different route - I don't know if that is what they voted for".

"It would deliver a principled and practical Brexit that is in our national interest, and the UK's and the EU's mutual interest".

He said the government had "missed a trick by holding back on detail in several areas" and criticised the paper for not detailing the dispute resolution system that would operate for business when outside the European court of justice's purview.
