Davis attacks plan to keep United Kingdom subject to European court

Davis attacks plan to keep United Kingdom subject to European court

At a separate meeting of foreign ministers, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson insisted that a recent offer by Prime Minister Theresa May for European Union citizens in Britain is "a very fair, serious offer".

While Mr Barnier will hold a press conference at the close of talks on Thursday, Mr Davis' team has yet to confirm whether the minister will join him. A Sunday Times newspaper story on the divisions amid positioning to succeed May was illustrated by an image of Hammond, Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson aiming pistols at each other.

"Five weeks ago, the idea of a transition period was quite a new concept, I think now you would find that pretty much everybody around the cabinet table accepts that there will be some kind of transition", he said.

The Brexit Secretary is hoping to win round Michel Barnier over Britain's plan to guarantee the future rights of European nationals living in the United Kingdom amid deep divisions back home.

The Brexit Secretary said progress had to be made this month on a deal for reciprocal rights for citizens.

Speaking on BBC TV's Sunday Politics show, Fox sought to downplay differences with Hammond. One said Hammond had urged against lifting pay restraints on what he called "overpaid" public sector workers, while another quoted the chancellor as saying driving modern trains was so easy that "even a woman can do it".

Asked how important it was to finalize revision of the WTO terms of membership before the European Union and Britain formally divorce, the source said: "I have the impression that the United Kingdom believes that is important".

Hammond accused unnamed colleagues of briefing against him to try to undermine what is seen as his push for a "soft Brexit" that would prioritize trade rather than hard-liners' demands for controls on European Union immigration or an end to European Union legal oversight.

May is expected to advise her cabinet, in a meeting Monday, to try to reduce tensions within her government.

European officials have said the British proposal to give EU citizens "settled status" does not go far enough. May has vowed to pull out of the single market and cut immigration to the "tens of thousands".

It said Britain's plan "would cast a dark cloud of vagueness and uncertainty over millions of Europeans" by giving EU citizens living in Britain fewer rights than those of British citizens in the EU.

The UK food system is "like the rabbit caught in the headlights, with no goals, no leadership and eviscerated key ministries", the academics wrote.

Civil servants will do the bulk of the negotiating. "This isn't correct. Believe me, we are embarking on a massive venture".
