The idea of staying within a common market
but outside the political integration is feasible.
This means free movement of labour, not people.
It doesn’t mean EU citizenship
with all the acquired rights.
Daniel Hannan, MEP
Brexit voters will be disappointed if they think there will now be
zero immigration from the EU.

As we look ahead to the likely timetable for the next few years, and with the invocation of Article 50 shortly, the best top team is needed to see through the negotiations for any new deal between the UK and the EU27.
I have therefore decided
to step down now,
having done everything that I could in the last six months to contribute my experience, expertise and address book to
get the new team at a political level under way.

As we leave the European Union,
we will forge a bold new positive
role for ourselves in the world, and
we will make Britain a country
that works not for a privileged few,
but for every one of us. We will do
everything we can to give you more
control over your lives.

Negotiations between Britain and the EU are unlikely to start until June now that Theresa May intends to trigger article 50 at the end of March. This means a delay would occur that will eat into the two-year negotiation window for Britain to reach a deal with the EU or crash out
on WTO terms, which include tariffs on UK imports.

The pound is likely to drop around 5 per cent to $1.15 against the dollar after Theresa May triggers Article 50

Brexit is a major cause for concern for Ireland as a whole, but particularly for counties along the border where communities there have such
close social and economic links.
The re-introduction of full custom checkpoints would cause considerable economic upheaval, posing a very real threat to employment and to our economy – both north and south. We don't want to have hard borders between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

We don’t want to have the Good Friday agreement put under risk, and we want land borders to be as open as possible.

The government will
have to set the financial
and political costs of
Britain leaving without
paying a multi - billion
against potential gains
from other elements of
an agreement on these crucial issues, talks on future relationships
between the EU and
UK cannot start.
Madame May is fully
aware of this, but she
is still fooling herself
that the Union can be impressed by her
The reality will soon wake her up.
Gianni Pittella, European Parliament
As you all know, I personally wish
the UK hadn’t chosen to leave the EU, but the majority of British voters decided otherwise.
The main priority for negotiations at
the EU27 summit on 29th April 2017
must be to create as much certainty
and clarity as possible for all citizens,
companies and member states that
will be negatively affected by Brexit
as well as for EU’s important partners
and friends around the world.

in the same way that we want to secure the status of EU nationals already living here. We are working with our embassies across the EU
to listen to any concerns and ensure
that UK expats are kept up to date
on the government’s position.
This has been particularly sustained in countries with large British expatriate populations, such as France and Spain. In Spain alone, there have been more than 20 meetings between the embassy and expatriates.
The government has been clear that we want to secure the status of British citizens currently living and working
in European member states,

A Labour government will set out a new Brexit strategy.
Labour will approach negotiations
in a completely different way to a Tory Brexit:
negotiating for the
many, not the few.
This will have a strong emphasis
on retaining benefits of the Single Market and Customs Union as Labour know it is vital to protect jobs and the British economy.

There was nothing on the ballot paper last june that said we were choosing to pull out of the single market. There was nothing on that ballot paper that said people or families from Europe that have made this country their home would be left in limbo, not knowing if they could stay in the country they raised their kids in.
The choices Theresa May makes and the compromises she negotiates with the bureaucrat in Brussels will affect our childrens future for decades to come. My children. Your children.

EU is united, UK is deeply split.
May wanted stability but brought chaos to her country instead.
The clock is ticking for Brexit. Therefore the UK needs a government soon. The date for the beginning of negotiations is now unclear. Our position is clear: we want good relations with the United Kingdom but Brexit means leaving the EU and the advantages that go with it.

I hate Brexit from every angle. But it is the outcome of a democratic referendum, and now we have to see whether we can give a context to it and lead it in such a way that is possible to keep this connection to the internal market, the customs union and therefore limit the economic impact which it will undoubtedly have.
You will as a country, more than you expect now, be hit by this soft or hard Brexit.
I hope, I dream even, that there might be some sort of connection in the future with the European internal market, with the customs union. I hope there might be some room to think again about the Brexit process to prevent an over the cliff scenario, a no-deal scenario, which I think will have a big impact on the UK economy but also our economies.
Gianni Pittella, European Parliament
Perceptions about the achievements so
far are so far apart. EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier says they are “far from real progress”, while his British counterpart, Brexit minister David Davis, speaks of “very productive negotiating days”.

I’m sorry what? Who does he think made all of these promises? Who does he think was in charge of the leave campaign?
All the broken promises of the leave campaign.
Lets just take a second to sympathise with poor old Boris Johnson. No, no, come on just a second. He’s not been happy lately. Apparently, he’s sick of being blamed for the way the Brexit is going.
I know that Boris doesn’t like paternity tests but maybe we need one for Brexit. Maybe we should take him into a studio with Jeremy Kyle.“I’m sorry Mr. Johnson we got the results back and it looks like this one is one of yours.” It must have been that wild night out he had with Michael Gove. And I’ve calculated your maintenance payments and that will be £350million a week.

We’re all going to the same place, we all have the same agenda, we’re all signed up to
the Prime Ministers Lancaster House speech, we’re all signed up to the Article 50 letter, we’re all behind the speech she made in Florence.
We have to negotiate hard to get the very best deal for Britain.
