As the recent talks between the two sides were cut short due to progress collapsing, Michel Barnier decided to point blame at the UK saying that it was only the EU who engaged in the 5th round of negotiations, not Britain.
Roger Helmers response to this was: “When Michel Barnier speaks of ‘a failure to negotiate’, he means a failure to make concessions, a failure to do as we’re told.
“Long may it continue.”
After that early closure of the negotiations last week, Mr Frost said the talks between the two sides had given “extra depth and flexibility”. Still, he felt the negotiations went as far as possible hitting a brick wall over EU demands of a “level playing field” and on access to fish in UK waters post-transition period.
David Frost who’s the UK negotiator, has roundly rejected both of the demands from Barnier’s team. The EU chief is continuing to push the need for a level playing field in hopes it wraps the UK in endless regulations to save the EU single market and fend off UK competitiveness post-transition period.

Mr Barnier said: “We will continue to insist on parallel progress on all areas.
“The EU expects, in turn, its positions to be better understood and respected in order to reach an agreement.
“We need an equivalent engagement by the United Kingdom.”
During an LBC interview with the Prime Minister, he was asked whether he had disrespected the EU in these negotiations, Boris said: “No, not remotely”.
When asked if the UK would give in on its redlines in regards to fisheries? Boris said: “hand over our amazing fish stocks, we’re not going to do that”.
The Prime Minister added: “We now need to make sure that we get a good deal.
“I’m a bit more optimistic than Michel is there, there is a good agreement to be reached, but obviously if we can’t then, we will have the very good option also of an Australian-style arrangement.”

  1. I really do consider that everybody from the UK side are wasting time and effort on trying to negotiate with dictators. For a start, Barnier and his crooks need to understand, the EU is absolutely nothing, it is only what its title suggests – a UNION, absolutely nothing else. As such, the EU has absolutely no sovereign rights whatsoever, it has absolutely nothing. I still say, despite what it says, Merkel and Macron are behind all of this, more Merkel. Macron has all the gob of a typical corrupt Frenchman, whereas Merkel is more thoughtful and demanding. All of the issues to do with the EU have all been of Merkel’s making, she is the one who has been pulling all the strings behind the scenes. If we look back to when incompetent treasonous May was the PM, wherever Merkel was in the world, she had to go running for the next page to be turned, what Merkel said was exactly what had to happen and what did happen until the rug was pulled from under May’s feet. Now we have a proper negotiator and a PM that will stand up for the UK, the EU and the corrupt dictators are lost. They do not know what to do, they are used to being obeyed and not being told no.
