EU sets Brexit talk conditions, priority for people, money, borders

EU sets Brexit talk conditions, priority for people, money, borders

European leaders have drawn a tough line, signaling they will not allow Britain to enjoy the benefits of EU membership but not bear the responsibilities.

Notification of the historic step will come in the form of a letter from the Prime Minister to Mr Tusk, though Downing Street did not make clear whether this would be a physical letter handed to the European Council president by a United Kingdom representative or might be sent electronically.

When the negotiations begin, the European Union is expected to announce a "divorce" Brexit bill, which will cover unpaid funds for projects which Britain has agreed to as a member.

This has been a very important decision which will involve intense negotiations related to politics and economy and finance for a period of nearly 2 years which is going to affect the people of United Kingdom as well as the neighboring countries.

An EU spokesperson told reporters in Brussels that they are "ready and waiting" for the letter.

Mr Tusk stated that his main priority for these talks will be to create "as much certainty and clarity as possible for all citizens, companies and member states that will be negatively affected by Brexit".

The Supreme Court ruled in January that May's government must obtain approval from the British parliament to trigger Article 50, prompting the introduction of emergency legislation.

The inhabitants constantly complained about the quality of the food, episodes of violence, and sexual assault in the youth home. He called on authorities "to evaluate whether it is appropriate to have these different groups concentrated in one place".


The Article 50 notification, under the Lisbon Treaty, gives two years for divorce talks - although that must also include ratification by the European Parliament, and is subject to a vote of national parliaments.

Britons voted in a June referendum to leave the European Union after more than 40 years of membership.

Tusk expects to release an initial response to the notification within 48 hours, and an extraordinary summit of the remaining 27 European Union members in four to six weeks.

Her aim is to enforce a message of unity in the wake of Scotland demanding a second referendum over its independence from the United Kingdom. Speaking before MPs on the Commons Brexit committee on Wednesday, Mr. Davis admitted that not reaching a Brexit deal would leave carmakers facing 10 per cent tariffs, while dairy and meat producers would be hit with tariffs of between 30 and 40 per cent on exports to the European Union, the Financial Times reported.

Downing Street said in London the tour was part of a series of visits around Britain to enable the prime minister to engage and listen to people from across the nation as it prepares to leave the EU.

"Labour respects the will of the people, but the Government has failed to build a consensus about what form Brexit should take."

There is even dispute over whether a country can change its mind about leaving once Article 50 is invoked - or how the two-year period can be extended.
