Tusk threat to 'freeze' Brexit talks until Irish get deal

Tusk threat to 'freeze' Brexit talks until Irish get deal

Companies in Britain and the European Union face an extra 58 billion pounds ($80 billion) in annual costs if there is a no-deal Brexit, with Britain's vast financial sector set to be the worst-hit industry, according to a report on Monday.

Sir, - Theresa May rejects the idea that Northern Ireland could be included within the European Union customs area, but warns of the "consequences for Ireland of a border in the Irish Sea" (News, March 6th).

"After Brexit there is a big discontinuity in all the trade and services, but we still have a large market and it's supposed to be an interesting opportunity for all the financial institutions", Katainen said.

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019 but is looking to agree a transition agreement for a period after Brexit in order to smooth out the impact.

The UK will come to "regret" the decision to leave the EU, European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has warned.

"I fully respect the Chancellor's competence in defining what is in the UK's interest but he must allow us to define what is in the EU's interest", he said.

The draft text outlines a much more limited cooperation than London had called for.

"At the same time, being outside the Customs Union and the Single Market will inevitably lead to frictions".

Mrs Foster herself is all too familiar with the violence which the Irish republicans brought on the Province - despite a referendum confirming a sizeable public majority in favour of remaining in the United Kingdom in 1973. It goes well beyond the Belfast Agreement in its North-South proposals.

Thankfully we should get lots more news on what Brexit means in the next week as the EU Summit scheduled for the 22-23rd March becomes a more important event.

The EU last week snubbed British Prime Minister Theresa May's calls for a special post-Brexit deal by offering London just a free-trade agreement with no special treatment for Britain's mighty financial sector. "But we will also continue our preparatory work on potential rebalancing measures, hoping that we are not forced to use them".

Mr Nicholson added: "We will be raising these points with Michel Barnier and Guy Verhofstadt tomorrow".

"This resolution now before the European Parliament is hugely significant as is goes further in recognising that a special solution is needed for the North as a result of Brexit", she said.

Key departure conditions will need to be approved unanimously by the EU nations and the European Parliament. "I've heard none of this today", he added.
