    EU gives UK two-week deadline on Brexit divorce bill

    EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier says progress needed on financial settlement to move talks on to future trade ties

    The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, has set the British government a deadline of two weeks to give “vital” clarification on the financial commitments it is willing to honour.

    Asked at the end of a truncated sixth round of Brexit talks whether Britain needed to offer answers on its financial settlement within a fortnight, Barnier told reporters: “My answer is yes.”

    During a joint press conference with the Brexit secretary, David Davis, there were few signs of any progress having been made since an October summit of EU leaders ruled that insufficient progress had been made to allow talks on a future trading relationship to begin.

    On the biggest hurdle to progress, the divorce bill, Davis simply repeated Theresa May’s pledges from her Florence speech in September: to ensure that no member state lost out in the two years after Britain left the bloc, and to honour past commitments.

    The EU is demanding clarity on those commitments before it will open talks on a transition period or the principles of a future trading deal.

    Barnier said: “I have to present a sincere and real progress to the European council and the European parliament.”

    EU leaders need to decide at a summit in mid-December whether “sufficient” progress has been made on preliminary issues to allow the talks to move on to future relations, a stage Britain is desperate to reach.

    Meanwhile, Davis batted away the suggestion from the Irish government and the European commission, as detailed in a leaked paper seen by the Guardian, that the issue of the Irish border could be settled by keeping the province in the single market and customs union.

    He told reporters that there would be “no new border in the United Kingdom”.
    The UK should demand 100 billion euros from the EU, or it won't buy any more BMWs.

    If I took a DM article and Guardian on the same subject, took a mean, that I might find out close to reality.
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    So is not a reality that:

    EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier says progress needed on financial settlement to move talks on to future trade ties.

    Well, you have a Guardian article with the EU saying that more progress must be made, and an Express article saying that May is preparing to offer more on the financial settlement.

    So perhaps you're right, between them we get the full story that the EU has asked for more commitment from the UK, and the UK is about to provide it :-)

    Express has posted some real nonsense recently. And probably before.

    It is entirely possible that you are cretinous enough to believe that.

    so is Barmy going to present the bill so we can decide what to pay?

    Or will we keep on hearing imaginary figures like their accounts??

    No, the reality is that Barnier will have his wedding veg removed with a blunt spoon unless he delivers a "deal" which secures utter misery for the UK, and untold billions for Juncker and his mates.
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    Your sense of victimhood is a bit sad now. What happened to the Guts n Glory Brexitism?

    That, and the story they used to spin was how important the UK was as a business partner to the EU. Back then they said the EU would do anything to keep us we are so critical, now they have flip-flopped their tune to be the EU will do anything to punish us.

    The Brexit camp can’t make their minds up, apart from knowing that no matter what, they must spin everything so they can blame the EU.
