With Britain standing firm on fisheries, Barnier has called a meeting with EU fisheries ministers tomorrow to assess possible compromises to enable a deal to be finalised. The EU is still pushing for joint access into Britain’s sovereign water’s.
Mr Barnier threatens to end the talks as the UK hasn't caved in. It's good news as we must be sticking to the truth there is no need to give away our fish, our right to make our own laws and control our own borders just so Germany can sell us cars tariff free. Your move EU.— John Redwood (@johnredwood) November 25, 2020
The EU is hoping that a compromise on fisheries from the EU will entice Britain to accept the EU’s demands for common standards (Rebrand of the level playing field) in negotiations. Someone close to the talks said: “That’s the price the UK needs to pocket for a compromise on the level playing field.”
An “Urgent” meeting with David Frost is said to have been called by Michel Barnier to continue in-person talks in London. Even though Barnier is desperate for a deal, he is anxious over the negative reaction from the French when asked asking for compromises on fisheries.
