UK PM Theresa May said she has secured “legally binding” changes to her Brexit deal on Monday, a day before the Parliament is due to vote on the deal again, after a disastrous first result in January, where the deal was voted down by a margin of 230. May and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker held a joint press conference late on Monday in Strasbourg. Juncker warned that if the deal was voted down by MPs again on Tuesday, there would be “no third chance”. He added: “Let us speak crystal clear about the choice – it is this deal or Brexit might not happen at all.” In May’s talks with Juncker and the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, two documents were agreed by all parties. The first document is a “joint legally binding instrument” on the Brexit deal, which May said could be used to start a “formal dispute” against the EU if it tried to keep the UK tied to the Irish backstop. The … [Read more...] about Theresa May: UK and EU agree to legally binding changes to Brexit deal
Rights for Britons residing in countries across the European Union and vice versa could be protected by a "separate deal" during ongoing Brexit developments, despite British Prime Minister Theresa May saying this would not be possible without a brand new EU mandate. The3million group, a grassroots organisation lobbying for the rights of EU nationals in the UK, said its lawyers had found that May's comment over the legality of negotiating a separate deal was "incorrect". May had told MPs on Tuesday that without a new mandate, the EU did not have the "legal authority" to separate the issue of citizens' rights from the Brexit deal. "This is a matter — unless it is part of the withdrawal agreement...good rights for citizens within the withdrawal agreement — for individual member states," she said. The prime minister's comments came as she dismissed a Brexit amendment tabled by fellow Conservative MP, Alberto Costas, that sought to guarantee the rights of UK and EU citizens … [Read more...] about Can a separate deal guarantee the rights of UK and EU citizens post-Brexit?
Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will have to retain "very close" if not full alignment on customs and market regulations after Brexit, Ireland's prime minister has said, contradicting Brexit supporters who have promised the UK will be free to set its own rules. "As has been the case with Brexit from day one, I'm not sure it's been fully thought through," Leo Varadkar told Euronews' Shona Murray. "The only way in my view that you can avoid a hard border, in the longer term, is to have very close if not full alignment on customs and on market regulations. And that is a direct conflict with the view that the United Kingdom can go it alone entirely on these issues." Varadkar even suggested that the UK and Ireland would need to agree to retain common rules in the event of a No Deal Brexit in order to abide by the provisions of the Good Friday peace agreement. Asked whether in that case, Dublin might be forced to put up border infrastructure in order to prevent unauthorised … [Read more...] about UK and EU will have to remain very closely aligned on rules in all Brexit scenarios: Irish PM
The EU has said flights from the UK into and over the EU would be allowed for 12 months to enable "basic connectivity" if the UK leaves the bloc without a deal. Following the government's announcement yesterday that it was ramping up its preparations for leaving the EU without a deal, the EU has issued its own no deal plans. As well as the 12-month guarantee the EU said it was proposing that regulation be extended by about 9 months to ensure that certain aviation licences remain valid. "These measures will only ensure basic connectivity and in no means replicate the significant advantages of membership of the single European sky," it said. The EU also put forward a proposal that will allow UK hauliers to continue to carry goods into the bloc for a temporary period of nine months. Transport secretary Chris Grayling said: “We need to study the detail, but any steps to ensure UK hauliers can continue carrying goods into the EU in the event of a no deal is good news, as is ensuring … [Read more...] about Flights to continue between UK and EU for 12 months in event of no-deal Brexit
