EU's Barnier says still 25% of work to do on Brexit

EU's Barnier says still 25% of work to do on Brexit

Prime Minister May has been clear in her plans for the United Kingdom to leave the single market and customs union but, in December, the British government offered a guarantee that this would not mean a hard border on the island of Ireland.

The Equality Commission has told the UK Border Force a campaign to recruit staff for jobs based at Belfast International Airport which made holding a British passport a requirement "could raise concerns about possible discrimination".

But, Remainers argue such a confidence vote gives them far more leverage, particularly after the Government repeatedly delayed a similar customs union vote in the House of Commons for fear of losing.

Sir Ivan Rogers' criticism of the government's proposed technological solution came as it emerged that European Union negotiators have rejected the model, which British officials say would render customs checks near-frictionless, as unworkable.

Observers say that should the ECJ indeed rule that Britons have separate implicit rights as European Union citizens, it could have massive implications, including impacting current Brexit negotiations.

The importance of the Irish border issue for the whole Brexit deal was reiterated by EU Council President Donald Tusk this week.

Mrs May has said remaining part of a customs union would "betray the vote of the British people" and "not be compatible with a meaningful independent trade policy".

The motion, which has been tabled by 10 select committee chairs including Conservatives Nicky Morgan and Sarah Wollaston, will be non-binding but the debate will increase pressure on the government to keep the customs union option alive following a massive defeat on the issue in the House of Lords on Wednesday. "I think Theresa totally gets that".

Mrs May said it was a scenario "no British Prime Minister could ever agree".

But the EU's destruction of the UK's customs proposals adds to a growing consensus that May will have little choice but to remain in the customs union if she wishes to avoid a hard border in Ireland. That is even more the case given her reliance on the DUP.

The so-called "backstop" solution agreed between London and Brussels in December 2017 is meant to safeguard the invisible border principle. It was a fudge that was not going to withstand scrutiny and needed to be fleshed out.

Even if Britain and the European Union were working towards a British exit from the European Union taking place in March 2019, this may not happen if outstanding topics such as Ireland were unresolved, he said.

What is certain is that time is running out.

But the group insist their legal rights as European Union citizens - including freedom of movement - should remain and be protected by The Netherlands even after Britain withdraws from the 28-member body at midnight on March 29, 2019.
