EU Gov'ts Agree To Start UK Trade Talks - With Conditions

Initially, the second phase of Brexit talks will be dominated by discussions over the transition period, under which the United Kingdom will continue to abide by European Union law for roughly two years, but not have a role in any decision-making institutions.

"I have not participated in the referendum and I would not have voted for the United Kingdom to leave the EU".

Speaking to the BBC's Newsnight earlier this week, Tory backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg stated: "We can not be a colony of the European Union for two years from 2019 to 2021, accepting new laws that are made without any say so of the British people or Parliament or Government".

THERESA May's hopes for striking a unique deal in the Brexit trade talks have been dealt a blow as the EU's chief negotiator warns the United Kingdom must "face the consequences" of leaving.

A devout Christian, Kaka wrote in a Twitter post on Sunday: "Father, it was much more than I could ever [have] imagined". However, Kaka said his transition off the pitch wasn't being taken for granted.

And as transition talks begin in the new year, this is a reality that May could soon be forced to face up to.

The deal nearly fell apart last week, when May's Northern Irish allies rejected an initial agreement for fear that a promise to protect a free border with European Union member Ireland could separate their region from the rest of the UK.

It adds that Britain will accept the entire legal "acquis" of the EU, including "all existing Union regulatory, budgetary, supervisory, judiciary and enforcement instruments and structures", as well as "the competence of the Court of Justice of the European Union". "Today is an important step on the road to delivering a smooth and orderly Brexit and forging our deep and special future partnership". On Wednesday, 11 Tory MPs voted with the opposition parties to demand a legally binding vote by parliament on whether the final deal with the European Union is accepted or rejected and sent back.

"We made clear that Theresa May has made an offer that should allow us to say that we have seen sufficient progress", she told reporters.

Whereas the party right-wing's offensive against Labour's nominal left leader, Jeremy Corbyn, once focused on his lack of commitment to the European Union, there is now a growing confluence of views on Brexit between the Blairites and the "Corbynistas".

"Unity was very much the topic of the discussion", Varadkar said, adding that individual bilateral negotiations with the United Kingdom should be avoided. "Hope for close future relations with United Kingdom after Brexit".

"The most important decision we made today was that we will do this behind the scenes, and that we will protect the unity of the 27", Rutte added.

Yet whatever words May chooses to describe the two year period after Brexit, it's become increasingly clear that any transition period will look very much like continued membership.

"Remaining united was already challenging during the first phase", Rutte said, referring to the UK as "smart negotiators" who knew how to "call capitals".
