As negotiation talks get underway tomorrow (Monday 29th June), the stakes are high for the EU. These next set of negotiation talks are set to be far more intense than previous negotiations between the two sides.
On Friday, UK Chief negotiator David Frost sent out several tweets laying out the road ahead for Britain in the coming talks. David sent a stern message: “UK sovereignty, over our laws, our courts, or our fishing waters, is of course not up for discussion”, and finished with a clear warning, saying: “Finally, I want to be clear that the Government will not agree to ideas like the one currently circulating giving the EU a new right to retaliate with tariffs if we chose to make laws suiting our interests. We could not leave ourselves open to such unforeseeable economic risk.”
