EU plan to deliberately bypass 15th October make or break brexit deadline “there are a number of weeks left in this negotiation, not a number of days.”

Today a General Affairs meeting was held in Luxembourg where EU member states all met to discuss Brexit and preparing their plan of action together before they enter into discussions between the EU and UK.

Simon Coveney, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade with special responsibility for Brexit of Ireland said that the meeting showed that unity was strong amongst EU member states as they go into the meeting with the British in the next couple of days.

Simon said: “When the European Council meets at the end of this week there will be a detailed stocktake on where we are in these negotiations.”
Simon said he doesn’t think that any major breakthroughs will happen during these stocktake discussions: “I don’t see that there will be any major breakthrough this week, the issues that remain outstanding in terms of the negotiation I think are clear.”

“On the future relationship, there needs to be a final agreement on Fair competition, effectively through a Level Playing Field and a governance model that can ensure that disputes in the future get resolved quickly and independently in a way that both sides can agree. Then there are many issues in relation to fishing which are still outstanding.”

Simon hints that the 15th October deal completion deadline will be missed saying: “First of all, there are a number of weeks left in this negotiation, not a number of days.”

Simon then says he values EU fishers and they will not be sold out to seal a deal with the UK. Simon said: The message was very clear from member states today. We value Fisherman; we value their contribution across the European Union. Certainly, EU fishers are not going to be sold out in an effort to get an agreement on a future relationship with the UK on trade. I think that’s very clear from today.”

The EU seems to be laying the groundwork for a further breach of deadline dates meaning the 15th of October date wasn’t an ultimatum date as promised. Simon thinks “I think a deal is very much still. Possible but there’s an awful lot of work to do.”

  1. Boris Johnson will only get this Covid 19 down, by shutting out the Illegals from Calais. They are 20 in a dinghy and bringing this disease into our Country. British people don’t want them here, this is causing racial tensions. They are trying to groom our young girls, some aged just 14 years. ………………. We shouldn’t be negotiating our fish in the North Sea with Brussels. Our own Fishermen need this, it’s their livelihood. ………………….British people didn’t vote for a Deal with the EU, we want out on a ‘No Deal’ the sooner the better. …………………… Boris isn’t addressing the Nation on some of these issues, particularly the Illegals and tensions are rising amongst British People. We feel Boris has let us down and many say they won’t vote for the Tory’s ever again. So much for Boris’s pledge to reduce immigration when he was campaigning to become PM. Now that he is PM, he’s not doing what he promised the Electorate. People are calling him Boris the Traitor!

  2. Simon Coveney wants to shut up about any fair playing fields and pay back the 7-8 Billion pounds that the U.K. bailed them out with a few years ago.He’s a worse man in the job than his predecessor. What a bloody shower they all are, not one of them to be trusted starting from top to bottom.
