At his Foreign Office press conference Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary, has urged the EU to move the Brexit talks on to the next stage, the BBC’s Vicki Young reports.
And this is what Leave.EU, the Ukip-aligned leave campaign during the referendum, is saying about the Brexit talks. A spokesperson said:
Michel Barnier refuses to discuss a future deal, the European parliament will veto a deal, Labour will reject ‘no deal’ and the European court of justice can strike down any agreed deal.
This so-called negotiation is more of a fudge than David Cameron’s. The whole thing is a complete waste of time, money and effort and we should do everyone a favour and leave now.
