UK, EU Delay Next Round of Brexit Negotiations

Mark Tami – Why I voted against the ‘Great Repeal Bill

He went on to call for a summit to be held in Romania on 30 March, 2019, the day after Britain secedes from the Union, at which the EU could "start its future as 27 [members]".

Top Eurocrat Jean-Claude Juncker dismissed Brexit today as he demanded all member states sign up to even closer ties.

Juncker said, however, that while Europe favoured open commerce, it needed reciprocity from its trading partners.

Juncker said there was a good chance that the European Union would agree the main elements of a new free trade with the Mercosur countries of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay and of an updated trade partnership with Mexico by the end of this year.

Juncker, a former prime minister of Luxembourg and long-time chairman of the euro zone finance ministers group, has sounded alarm at noisy disputes over European Union subsidies, civil liberties, fiscal policy and national sovereignty that are dividing northern and southern states, rich and poor, the west from the ex-communist east.

Lord Maude also accused senior officials of routinely misleading ministers and wasting billions of pounds.

During the address, he spoke about securing new European Union trade deals with New Zealand and Australia, ruled out Turkey becoming a member and said a new migrant deportation policy would be proposed by the end of September.

Mercedes-AMG Project One revealed: the ultimate hypercar?
The seats don't slide, but adjustable backrests, pedals and steering wheel allow passengers to get comfortable. The hypercar from Mercedes is projected to arrive in 2020 and it promises a performance that is purely insane.

But Turkey will have to wait.

This is shorter than has been previously suggested by others, and he said a transition with "no end" would be a "gangplank into thin air, increasing uncertainty and fuelling suspicion that it would be a means to stay in the European Union permanently by stealth".

"East to west: Europe must breathe with both lungs".

Juncker has also resurrected the idea of merging his own post with that of the President of the European Council, who now represents the interests of its member state governments, saying it would be easier if "one captain was steering the ship". "The judgments of the European Court of Justice have to be respected by all". The right road for Europe can only be the road where there is more democracy left to the people, more democracy left to the citizens where people can vote whether or not they want to have Schengen maintained or not, whether they want their borders or not. "It is a must", he added.

It will say the United Kingdom has the largest defence budget and development budget in Europe, while it has also committed to invest at least 50% of development spend in fragile states and regions.

Juncker stood firm on the issue of posted workers, where the commission proposed equal pay for all - something that could threaten eastern European workers in western member states.
