European Union says 'hearts still open' to Brexit reversal

GETTYBrexit negotiator Michel Barnier will meet with a group of pro-EU MPs in Brussels today

"So the problem is the EU is very slow on free trade agreements, and if Britain gets free hands then you will be able to sign free trade agreements with India, with Turkey, with the US, with Australia, with which the European Union does not have free trade agreements".

Ms Soubry refused to go into details about the "private" meeting, but told the Press Association: "One of the reasons that we came over was to make it very clear that as parliamentarians we are not bystanders in the process of our leaving the European Union".

In a meeting (15 January) with former presidents of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said that he agreed that Brexit was a lose-lose situation for the United Kingdom and EU.

'Wasn't it [Brexit secretary] David Davis himself who said, "If a democracy can not change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy"?'

"It also means a new set of guidelines, the hardest work is still ahead of us and time is limited".

"We must maintain the unity of the EU27 in every scenario, and personally I have no doubt that we will", he said.

European Parliament leaders today ruthlessly mocked Britain for celebrating the return of the UK's iconic and much-missed blue passport.

Even Brexit enthusiast Nigel Farage has suggested that a second referendum may be necessary to "end the moaning".

This way, Tusk showed that reversing Brexit was still a possibility in his mind., a conclusion that the European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, could only agree with. However, the representative added: "The British people have voted to leave and the government is getting on with implementing that decision".

Diplomats say those discussions reveal a firm line among the 27 on holding Britain to commitments to accepting continued obligations to the EU during the transition, including accepting continued free immigration from the EU and being subject to EU courts - key complaints of Brexit supporters.

The story said, "Demands to open up Britain's shady network of overseas tax havens are set to be used by the European Union as leverage to force concessions during Brexit trade talks, The Independent understands".
