Boris – “I think the people of this country have had enough of being told that this (WTO exit) will be impossible or intolerable. I think we can prosper mightily under those circumstances.”

EU Top Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier meets with Merkel in an effort to get a trade deal over the line. However, Merkel states that the need for an Internal Market Bill is a “bitter” blow to the negotiations.

Over the weekend Boris said to the EU that he would much prefer a free trade deal with the EU than walking away on a WTO Brexit, but if we had to walk away without a deal that is also an acceptable outcome. Over the weekend Boris said and agreed with Ursula von der Leyen, EU Commission President, that he is okay with negotiations to be stepped up in an effort to achieve a deal.

On Sunday the PM said: “I think it’s there to be done.
“Alas, there are some difficult issues that need to be fixed, and there’s no question that the EU needs to understand that we’re utterly serious about needing to control our own laws and our own regulations, and similarly they need to understand that the repatriation of the UK’s fisheries is very important.”
“I don’t want the Australian WTO-type outcome, particularly, but we can more than live with it.

“I think the people of this country have had enough of being told that this will be impossible or intolerable. I think we can prosper mightily under those circumstances.”

More trade talks are said to be happening this week and then it’s a major summit will be taking place with the EU on the 15-16 October.
