Michel Barnier deems it “simply unacceptable” for the UK to have exclusive control over its own sovereign waters.

Yesterday, at the close of the brexit talks, both sides went their ways with out any progress in negotiations. David Frost and Michel Barnier had to concede to the fact that No Deal is now a very real prospect.

David Frost said:”When the next round of negotiations begins there will be not much more than four months left until the end of the transition period. Although we will continue energetically to seek an agreement with the EU, we must face the possibility that one will not be reached”

Mr Barnier blamed the lack of progress on the UK having a halfhearted approach in these negotiations. Barnier said: “time for answers is quickly running out”.

He said: “By its current refusal to commit to the condition of open and fair competition, and to a balanced agreement on fisheries, the UK makes a trade agreement at this point unlikely.”

Mr Barnier then said it was “simply unacceptable” for the UK to have exclusive control over its own sovereign waters, saying: “The UK is effectively asking for a near-total exclusion of EU fishing vessels from UK waters. That is simply unacceptable.”

David Frost fight back against the demands from the EU.
Barnier frustrated over Britain rejecting the level playing field mechanism

What Barnier says falls inline with the position of Boris Johnson who has repeatedly said; the UK would take back its sovereign waters, meaning we will be a true “independent state” when the transition period finishes on 31st December 2020.

The whole press conference was about pushing doom and gloom, with Barnier expressing his disgust that Britain actually wanted their independence from the undemocratic EU.

Boris and David Frost making sure we leave the transition period with or with out a deal at the end of December 2020.
David Frost returned saying: “We have made progress in areas like trade, trade of goods and services, transport, social security cooperation, EU programmes, participation and so on, which is good.
“But nevertheless big differences do remain, in particular with the familiar questions of the so-called level-playing field and fisheries policy.
“We’re in a negotiation. Either outcome is possible.
“We will work energetically to get a deal but it is possible we won’t reach one.”
Fellow brexiteers started praising David Frost on social media. Former Brexit Party MEP Rupert Lowe wrote on Twitter: “Latest round of Brexit talks have just finished.”
“Sounds like Frost is standing firm on fishing and the level-playing field. ‘Considerable gaps remain.”
“@DavidGHFrost – keep up the good work. All Brexiteers will raise a glass to you on December 31st if you can deliver!”
Trade talks are to intensify over the summer period, with panic setting in from the EU as time is running out to achieve a deal.
