United Kingdom 'ready to move on' in Brexit talks, May claims

Theresa May has been given permission to offer the EU a €40bn divorce package

The EU has said the United Kingdom needs to come forward with concrete proposals on the Irish border and on what past financial commitments it will honor by early December if EU leaders are to declare at their Dec. 14-15 summit that enough has been achieved to start talks on a transition period and a trade deal.

"We do recognise that we are at a critical phase because we all, well certainly I, want to see the negotiations move to the second phase so that we can talk about those issues of trade, and the issues that will make a difference, actually, to the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland".

"Keep open border or we'll use our veto".

If Brexit is to be fulfilled then some sort of border must exist between Northern Ireland and Ireland, although no border should exist between Northern Ireland and the rest of Britain and between Ireland and France.

With the Brexit talks entering a decisive period before the December deadline for a resolution to the first phase - which includes progress on the issue of the border - SDLP leader Colum Eastwood says there needs to be sufficient clarity that there will be no hardening of the border.

Britain is scheduled to leave the bloc in March 2019.

She said: "The people of Northern Ireland delivered peace and stability".

PENN STATE: It may be a fun winter in Happy Valley, and not just because of the nationally ranked football team. With the win, the Nittany Lions improved to 5-0 for the first time since the 2008-09 season.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister May met representatives of the two largest Northern Irish political parties, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and Sinn Fein in London. But when he declared that a return to a hard border was "unthinkable", Labour's shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry, reminded him of a lengthy piece he wrote last September, laying down four personal red lines for the Brexit negotiations.

She told the BBC: "Some people are taking their moment in the sun, to try and get the maximum in relation to the negotiations - and I understand that but you shouldn't play about with Northern Ireland particularly at a time when we're trying to bring about devolved government again".

Mr Varadkar said the British government does not seem to have thought Brexit through.

The paper said: "Leo Varadkar may not like Brexit".

The remarks from the prime minister and Davis came a day after European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier said Europe was ready to offer Britain the "most ambitious" trade partnership possible but it will not compromise its standards.

Ms Foster said the Taoiseach's warning that Brexit could endanger the Northern Irish peace process was "a very careless thing to say".
