The minister has said that the strategy is “to be better and compete” with the EU on all fronts.

The revelation comes as a string of chief executives from EU countries took part in a round table discussion in Downing Street today.

The meeting with Theresa May comes amid reports that industry in Germany is “beginning to panic” that the European Commission tactics will lead to Britain walking away from talks damaging their biggest export market for cars.

The minister told the Daily Express: “We have taken a polite approach and tried to be as reasonable as possible so far but in the end we have the means to compete and outdo the EU.

The  presenter branded Michel Barnier “Jack Cherry McCherrypicker” after the publication of the latest set of EU  guidelines revealing Brussels’ intentions for the next phase of talks with Britain.

The latest Brexit guidelines, presented earlier this week, set out the EU terms to secure a free-trade agreement between London and Brussels.

Neil slapped down Mr Barnier, calling him out for allegedly wanting to “cherry pick” the terms of a future arrangement after warning Britain against it.

The BBC This Week host said: “In Brussels, Michel Barnier, the Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator, revealed the EU’s bargaining position for the next round of talks.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Great European Policy Switch went down like the ­falling wet snow in Labour ’s ­heartland.

Shoppers in Barnsley market in South Yorkshire didn’t warm to his conversion to “a customs union” with the EU after Brexit .

This is devout Leave country, where almost 70% of voters said “Out”. If the new message is to gain traction, it has to be among these ranks of traditional Labour.

But a poll of people taking shelter from the snow showed not even Jezza’s vague promise of “a” customs union has changed minds.

The last union that was popular here was the National Union of Mineworkers, and look what happened to that.

Brexit controlled by a Labour Party Government would be the “worst of all worlds”, according to Michael Hewson, Chief Market Analyst at CMC Markets.
Speaking to Bloomberg’s The Cable podcast about the recent row amongst the Conservative Party about Chancellor Philip Hammond’s calls for a “modest” break from the European Union, Hewson said the Labour party was more divided on its Brexit position.

He said: “The party’s divided but so’s the country.

“Ultimately the Labour party is divided as well because ultimately they would then have to come up to the plate and really set out their view on Brexit.

Adam Boulton said that Tory mutineers were using the debate around the future EU-UK trade deal to ensure that Britain remains a part of the EU in all but name.

During Sky’s All Out Politics, Boutlon pressed Vicky Ford, a Remainer who controversially rebelled against the Government on Brexit last year, on the Government’s trade plan.

Spain do your duty and support the majority in Catalonia, that is democracy in action.

Josep Goded

Over the past few years, unionist parties together with the Spanish government had been saying that the vast majority of Catalans, who support the unity of Spain, were being silenced by the Catalan ‘separatist’ government. They contended that pro-independence parties always tend to win an absolute majority in general elections because most unionists never participate in Catalan electoral contests due to the fact that they do not identify with Catalan politics.

This was the main reason why the Spanish administration called for snap elections: “To give citizens back their voice.” However, this myth, which has been spread by unionist forces across Europe for years, was debunked in the latest Catalan general elections held this past December 21st, which had the highest turnout in Catalonia’s history: 82%. 

Pro-independence parties (JxCat, ERC, and CUP) not only validated their absolute majority of seats in Parliament (70), but got more than 2 million votes:…

Earlier this week Mr Barnier announced he was not open to a free trade agreement including financial services.

However, senior Brussels figures, including President of the EU Commission Jean Claude Juncker, are said to be “not happy” with the announcement which was unauthorised.

A senior Government source said: “Nobody pays any attention to what Barnier says in Brussels, yet in Britain, it is oddly taken as EU gospel when it is not.

Remainers say negotiate with the EU, while Brexiteers say go for hard Brexit, with Barnier saying there will be no ‘NO special trade deal for the UK, indeed, there will not be a fair trade deal for the UK.’ can you actually negotiate with the EU.

So is it rally Brexit with NO Deal and we use WHO arrangements or just stay in the EU and in time there will be the United States of Europe, no UK £, No Sovereign Parliament, or any form of say just accept what the EU dictates.

The choice is yours or have we already made in it the Brexit Referendum.


Fact or fantasy?

IF Barnier is sacked, it will be because he blew the whistle before time. There will be NO special trade deal for the UK, indeed, there will not be a fair trade deal for the UK.

It will be the EU’s way, or NO way. The fact that EU member states export to the UK, the fact that EU citizens in the other 27 member states rely upon those exports to the UK, NONE of this will make any difference.

The EU have learned that as with Cameron and Blair before them, they are dealing with weak opposition in May and her team, who are extremely sympathetic to the EU (after 40 odd years of ignoring the electorate, and conniving to keep us in the club, why would they not be). The EU believe that everybody else has to act honourably, whilst only they…

Henkel is a German MEP and former head of IBM in Europe who has just iterated what many German businesses fear but what for some reason EU leaders and British Remainers cannot bring themselves to contemplate.

If Britain were to withdraw from the EU without a trade deal, Henkel said over the weekend, the biggest loser in the medium to long-term would not be Britain – it would be Germany.

Exports of German cars to Britain have already plunged by 20 per cent – as big a plunge, Henkel noted, as during the economic crisis of 2008/09.
