EU Demands UK Act in 'Good Faith' in Brexit Treaty Revision

Ministers have been accused of making Parliament `voteless

"Does Britain also want to leave that model and go toward regulatory competition-call it dumping-against us", he asked legislators at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

Diplomats, who have been revising the document published by the European Commission two weeks ago, have added an entire section on "good faith".

Britain would be free to impose some new sanctions, for example denying entry to Russian individuals, but would be very limited in its ability to, say, bar more Russian imports as European Union trade policy is centralised in Brussels and will remain so, probably, for a couple years after Brexit in March 2019.

The debate and vote (on Wednesday) come ahead of the 22-23 March EU summit in Brussels where EU heads of state or government are expected to approve the Council's guidelines for the future relationship negotiations.

If the European Union (EU) and Britain are to reach an understanding on their future relationship, London should provide more clarity on its view about it, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, told the European Parliament here Tuesday.

The full text of the prime minister's speech is available here.

Microsoft accidentally pushes Windows updates to users who opted to block updates
The admission came in a knowledge base article updated last week. Microsoft explains that this issue was already fixed. Microsoft admitted its blunder.

In a report by The Independent, this new proposal has been strongly criticised by the Irish government, who claim that it will break Theresa May's pledge of "physical infrastructure and associated checks" at the border once Brexit has occurred. Understandably, given its inherently worldwide nature and reliance on cross-border trade, the financial services sector would be worst hit in the UK.

Mr Varadkar says certain tensions could be re-ignited by a hard border.

Or as much of it as I could find, anyway, as in truth, it is often far from clear where one jurisdiction begins and the other one ends.

Mr Juncker today said the draft proposals should not come as a surprise or shock, suggesting it "translates faithfully" the agreement reached between British and European officials late previous year to avoid a hard border. She admitted that access between Britain and European Union markets would be reduced, given that the EU's stance on the freedom of movement and other criteria for single market access were not aligned with British needs.

This option would give the United Kingdom more flexibility to deviate away from the EU's regulations and would mean that when vehicles carrying goods would ordinarily have to stop for customs checks, they would be able to carry on driving without the need to stop.

Firms across the EU's 27 countries other than Britain will have to pay 31 billion pounds a year in tariff and non-tariff barriers if Britain leaves the bloc without a deal, the report by Oliver Wyman management consultants and law firm Clifford Chance said. 72 per cent of trade in and out of Belfast Harbour is to Great Britain and less than one fifth to the EU. If this eliminated tariffs it would solve one problem in relation to the Border.
