European Union can 'go whistle' for Brexit bill

European Union can 'go whistle' for Brexit bill

"I'm not hearing any whistling, just the clock ticking", Barnier told a Brussels conference - underlining where the power lies, in his view.

"Boris's comments in the Commons regarding the EU's "excessive" demands for a "leaving bill", and his agreement that they could "go whistle for it" show that reality is starting to sink in".

The EU is said to be preparing to insist on at least £50bn to cover Britain's outstanding debts to the bloc.

Mr Barnier is to be congratulated on his little bon mot - the man knows how to deliver a line - but that doesn't mean his version.

The Brexit Secretary also said there was a need for a transition period for other countries to prepare customs and border controls.

The EU has piled further pressure on Britain to settle its "divorce bill" and the fate of EU citizens after Brexit - demanding answers within five days.

Britain can not stay a member of the EU nuclear regulator Euratom after Brexit, whether it wants to or not, European Parliament Brexit pointman Guy Verhofstadt said Wednesday.

Brexit has thrown a host of issues into doubt, including the future of the disputed Mediterranean outcrop of Gibraltar, which Spain's king addressed in a speech to the British parliament on Wednesday.

Theresa May's spokeswoman said: 'We are a country that will meet our legal obligations, whatever they may be.' David Davis, who is heading Britain's negotiating team, said: 'I'm not going to comment on other ministers'. Mr. Barnier said Britain must offer more clarity on its position on the "divorce bill" financial settlement with the European Union - as well as the status of expat citizens and the nature of the future border with the Republic of Ireland - if it is to make progress towards a deal on trade arrangements after Brexit.

The EU's top Brexit negotiator has said there are still major differences between the EU and United Kingdom on the rights of EU citizens living in Britain.

Johnson said the British government is working to strengthen its relations with partners worldwide, adding: "As a champion of free trade, we will continue to seize the opportunities afforded by Brexit and guarantee our long-term global prosperity".

There's a 'Sense of Panic' at Apple as iPhone 8 Problems Persist
But reportedly, the new device will not look like any previous iPhone because, it will adopt a new shape. This time, however, it isn't the new hardware that's the problem but the software using those hardware.

The EU negotiator ruled out any discussion on Britain's future trade relationship until the three key points were resolved.

"We want European Union citizens in Britain to have the same rights as British citizens who live in the European Union", he told a news conference in Brussels.

The two sides have sparred over the issue, with EU lawmakers accusing Britain of planning to give Europeans in Britain "second-class status".

Barnier said it was a "question of trust" for the EU-27.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused Mr Johnson of being arrogant and said the silly remarks were counter-productive.

Speaking on the European Union potential domino effect, Davis said: "I've always viewed that as a fear without foundation".
