Brandon Lewis – Barnier “recognises the EU do need to move”.

With negotiations back on, Northern Ireland secretary Brandon Lewis has said he thinks Barnier has come back to the table as the EU recognise it needs to give way.

He told the BBC’s Andrew Marr show: “The fact that Michel Barnier has outlined in the last week or so that they are going to come back and do these intensive negotiations, he recognises the EU do need to move, and that he is staying through to next week, is totally a very good sign.

“I think there is a good chance that we can get a deal but I think it is for the EU to understand that it is for them to move as well.

“We have got to make sure that it is a deal that works not just for our partners in Europe — we want to have a very good relationship with them obviously — but one that works for the United Kingdom.

“I think there is a good chance that we can get a deal but I think it is for the EU to understand that it is for them to move as well.”

  1. Brandon Lewis may suggest that Messr Barnier moves on the EC red lines, but, to suggest that WE should also move is signifying weakness again.
    The longer we remain firm the more certain it is that they will capitulate and then we MIGHT get a sensible and equitable divorce.
    Otherwise, we are in danger again.
