After the EU – UK fourth round of negotiations coming to a close yesterday, Michel Barnier, again, took to the stage, in front of the world’s press, to confirm that no progress was made in the week-long negotiations. His speech came across as his chance to vent blame on the UK, yet again, for the lack of progress due to the fact Britain didn’t bow down to the EU’s “Level playing field” demands.
- Downing Street planning to delaying the implementation of the Internal Market Bill till December.
- New migration agreement is needed as many in the EU regard the Dublin agreement as obsolete.
- EU launch another public threat towards the UK, while pushing their failed level playing field card once again.
- French are furious as pressure on Boris to drop the Internal Market Bill fails. Boris defiantly ploughs on.
- Viktor Orban criticises EU’s new plan to stop illegal migration.
Once again, the whole negotiation debacle hasn’t worked due to the EU wanting the UK to accept a substandard deal, which doesn’t respect the future autonomy of the UK. From the start, the UK made it crystal clear in the future relation declaration document, that any push against Britain becoming an independent coastal state would be outright rejected. Barnier needs to realise that until the bloc treats the UK as a third sovereign, independent country, the UK will not be signing a deal.
