@MichelBarnier, addressing a Spanish audience, cuts to the chase: withdrawal agreement is the best possible for citizens and budget but also for aviation and fisheries.
The UK has grossly underestimated the consequences of #Brexit, says Barnier. It will need to build up a whole new administration in very little time.
#GibraltarWatch: Barnier, in Madrid: “There is a protocol to the Withdrawal Agreement saying what will happen with #Gibraltar.” Now, moving on to the more important question of Ireland...
To design the #backstop, I used a British idea, says Barnier. I followed British suggestions. This backstop is a British demand. I would have preferred a NI-only backstop.
And of course: “this treaty will not be reopened. We need it to protect the Single Market”
We are looking forward to kick off negotiations on the future relationship with Britain as soon as possible. But, for that, we need to know what Britain wants so we can solve the divorce first.
Barnier says that the best relationship you can have with the EU is... to remain in the EU. The second best is Norway, he concedes.
“Detricoter le marché unique”. Gotta love the French language ❤️
We are ready and will be happy to listen to @theresa_may and her government’s suggestions on how to tweak the backstop. But we will not, I repeat, reopen the withdrawal agreement.
