The European Union is demanding a possible veto on Britain’s post-Brexit legal guidelines and laws, The Times newspaper reported on Saturday, citing senior authorities officers.
The British every day reported that EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, is alleged to be insisting that London should agree to not implement any change to UK laws that would distort commerce with the bloc with out first consulting Brussels.
Barnier’s UK counterpart, David Frost, has rejected the strategy, The Times reported.
EU diplomats mentioned earlier that Barnier went to London on Tuesday to inform Frost Britain should transfer on state support, or there won’t be a Brexit settlement.
The probabilities of Britain leaving the European Union with out a commerce deal have risen sharply as negotiations have been threatened by London’s insistence that it have full autonomy over its state support plans. Reuters
