Britain and the EU agree a deal on Friday for no hard border for Northern Ireland and rights for citizens but attention now turns to what happens next for Brexit.
David Davis told the Brexit Committee that no impact assessments have been carried out on the effect of leaving the EU on the UK economy.
How to maintain a soft Irish border had emerged as the key sticking point to getting agreement from the EU to move on to phase two in negotiations.
Having travelled around Europe in the later 80s and decided to make my home in the UK, I steeped myself in every aspect of this country and its culture - not as a confidence trick nor to compensate for something, but because this is what I felt would give me the best chance of happiness and contribute to my chosen home’s prosperity. The popular culture my peers had grown up with, the English language, UK politics, history, cultural eccentricities - I absorbed it all like a sponge. Indeed, the length of time I have been here is often used against me as an argument, both by ardent Brexiters - 'If you’ve been here all this time, why didn’t you become a British citizen?’ - and well-meaning Remainers - 'After all this time, it should be very easy for you to apply’.
David Davis is accused of submitting an edited version of the impact of Brexit to MPs.
Animal lovers were concerned that Brexit would weaken welfare rules but Environment Secretary Michael Gove has now sought to assuage those fears.
This seems to be the case with the chancellor of the exchequer’s autumn Budget statement. “This Budget is about much more than Brexit”, said Philip Hammond in his opening remarks. The Budget may deal with a multitude of future issues, but every single one of them is permeated, underscored and affected by Brexit, be it directly or indirectly.
The confidential report quotes senior EU figures describing the “chaos in the Conservative government” as the official Brexit date gets closer.
Brexit begins in six weeks. This is about the first legal implication of Brexit, the first drop from the cliff edge. It takes place on January 1st, 2018, when the UK government loses its right to issue carbon dioxide emission permits.
Left-wing attacks of the EU have a long political heritage and include some much-loved figures on the left, like Tony Benn. It paid high Finnish wages and abided by high Finnish worker standards and, as a consequence, it made a loss.
German chancellor Angela Merkel is in a perilous political position after coalition talks fell apart.
The social media giant has admitted that the platform was targeted by Russian trolls in the weeks leading up to the Brexit vote.
The Conservatives had won 69% of their new 2017 voters by the start of the general election campaign. Much of this success was linked to a belief that now they were unshackled by EU membership, they would at last be effective in reducing immigration. In 2015 hardly anyone believed David Cameron would reduce immigration.
Most hoped, not unreasonably, that the year ahead would bring with it some measure of clarity on the future of Britain’s relationship with the EU (and the rest of the world), the status of 3 million EEA nationals in the UK, and the likely shape of Britain’s post-Brexit immigration system. Humiliation at the polls, scheming and scandal in the cabinet, and deadlock in Brexit negotiations have left Theresa May’s government fractured and weak. Britain is now faced with the unenviable prospects of another early election, an economic crisis, a breakdown in talks or some combination of all three.
In a couple of weeks, Philip Hammond will deliver his second Budget and the first since the snap general election. Stevens outlined stark consequences for patients, with clear political consequences: without substantial extra funding next year, we would turn back years of progress that have seen waiting times for surgery fall from 18 months to 18 weeks. By 2020, the waiting list could reach five million people.
The EU’s Chief Brexit Negotiator has set a two-week deadline for the UK to agree to a Brexit divorce bill. Michel Barnier said that talks could not progress to the next stage – namely discussions of future trade deals – unless a commitment is made within the time frame. EU leaders will officially decide at a summit in December whether or not sufficient progress has been made in phase one of Brexit talks in order for discussions to move on to the second phase.
Former prime minister David Cameron, 51, earns up to £2,000 a minute making speeches since leaving office, according to media reports.
Lord Kerr, who played a key role in drafting Article 50, the legal mechanism for a country to leave the EU, will suggest that the Government's suggestion that Brexit cannot be reversed is misleading the British public.
