Brussels say UK talk of a trade deal with the EU being close is “Complete nonsense”.

While the UK is upbeat about some progress in negotiations being made, the same cant be said for the EU. A big canyon remains between the two sides on fisheries which have so far been a highly contentious area for negotiations.

With only a week to go till the October 15 deadline, time is indeed running out for the two sides to make a deal. On October 15-16 Ursula von der Leyen will meet with Boris for the second time to take stock of negotiations.

The PM spokesperson said: “Although some progress had been made in recent discussions, they acknowledged that significant areas of difference remain, particularly on fisheries,” a Downing Street spokesman said. “Chief Negotiators should continue to work intensively in the coming days to try to bridge the gaps.

He added: “The Prime Minister outlined our clear commitment to trying to reach an agreement, underlining that a deal was better for both sides. He also underlined that, nevertheless, the UK was prepared to end the transition period on Australia-style terms if an agreement could not be found.”

An EU official spoke out to Politico.eu: “We are seriously questioning their tactic and why they are sending these kinds of messages as there is no deal in sight at all at this point.

“There’s clearly a spin that the UK wants to get out there: a deal is within reach, only fish is still a problem. “That’s complete nonsense, as a deal on none of the EU’s red lines is nowhere in sight at this stage.”

  1. Why are we continuing with this farce the EU are happy for no deal unless we capitulate and if we do Boris snd the Conservative party will be finished

  2. The EU just wants control over us pure and simple, have they asked other sovereign countries when in negotiations the same red lines they want over us? NO. We cannot have interference in the form of governance, no control over our waters and NO level playing field. Most of what the EU propose is not in good faith and we should just walk away from what will be a bad deal for the UK… we need to be free of the EU criminals they are nothing more than a new version of Mafia!
