No deadlock in Britain-EU divorce talks — EU's Tusk

Asked whether he agreed with Mr Davis's claim last night that the United Kingdom had been the one making all the concessions so far, Donald Tusk told reporters that the Brexit Secretary must be exercising his "English sense of humour".

Donald Tusk said "much more progress" was needed in negotiations.

The European Council president has mocked David Davis 's "English sense of humour" after the Brexit secretary suggested the EU must compromise in order to allow Brexit talks to progress.

Varadkar said Friday that he would not permit Brexit talks to move beyond phase one into future relations and trade until he was assured there will be no barriers between the two.

"I think it would be in all of our interests that we proceed to phase two in December".

Donald Tusk has told Theresa May she has two weeks to offer up more money if the European Union is to agree to begin Brexit trade talks in December - but this has only reaffirmed Iain Dale's vote to Leave.

The EU summit chair told reporters after meeting May in Sweden: "While good progress on citizens has been made, we need to see much more progress on Ireland and on the financial settlement".

"We will be ready to move onto the second phase in December but, in order to do so, we need to see more progress from the United Kingdom side", Tusk said. "I hope that we will be able to come to an agreement as far as the divorce is concerned at the December council but work has still to be done", European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said.

He said, of the British government, that "sometimes it doesn't seem like they've thought all this through".

In December the heads of state of the EU27 countries will meet at the European Council to discuss whether "sufficient progress" has been made in negotiations on the Irish border, the financial settlement and citizens' rights.

In his speech to a German audience Mr Davis warned against putting "politics before prosperity" and said Theresa May had already "explained a bold ambition for the form of our future relationship". Both sides, however, still hope to reach a consensus on these issues by the end of the year.
