EU running down the negotiation clock in the hopes Britain caves in last minute to their demands.

With the seventh round of talks underway, the search for a deal continues. With both sides still at logger’s heads in these talks, an outcome with a deal isn’t looking likely.

Barnier has said that an agreement has to be done by October for it to be ratified by the end of the year. With time running out to do a deal EU diplomats reaffirmed that “The state aid part of the level playing field and fisheries remain the main hurdles.

“If this moves, everything else will fall into place.”
“This round should not bring major breakthroughs: eyes are on the last one in September.”

It is reported that the latest talks are stalling yet again. Both sides are still standing by their redlines, with no progress being made. The UK has again come out saying that there will be no extension to the deadline and if a deal can’t be agreed then we would deal with the EU on World Trade Organisation terms.

The EU is hoping the closer they can drag these negotiations to the deadline date; the more likely the UK will bend to EU demands. This claimed was ratified by an EU official who said to Politico: “The UK desperately needs this deal.

“If the clock is ticking, reality will start to sink in in London.

“The UK might not always have behaved rationally in its negotiations with Brussels, but surely the pandemic and the lack of trade alternatives must lead to some reason in London.”

London took apart these claims saying it’s “a bit of a stretch” to say Britain will suddenly accept EU demands because other trade deals have stalled. London has also said they will “continue to plug gaps” with UK negotiator Mr Frost saying “Our assessment is that agreement can be reached in September and we will work to achieve this if we can.” What’re your thoughts?

  1. if eu want to run down the clock we say stop the clock now end negotiations now and send barnier home as the man who through intransigent’s screwed up any deal that might have been possible. after 4 years he is still trying to maintain control of the UK both in law and eu directives and still has his eye on UK funding indefinatly. but he still wants to control UK fisheries in other words exactly what he has been demanding for 4 years. Now threatening UK haulage industry, he seems to forget how man eu truckers are on UK roads

  2. Boris and David do not capitulate to these E U Mafia, they need us more than we need them, remember our fishing waters are not up for negotiation.

  3. They need us more than we need them. Let them run down the clock and then we will stand back and watch them come begging for our trade and our fish. They can now buy it from our fishermen instead of over fishing our territorial waters. When our fish stocks have regained in strength then all the better.
