Showing: everything
Hundreds voice dismay at Sunak and Starmer, accusing them of misreading UK attitudes towards Europe.
David Davis told me ... that the "row of the summer" would be ... the EU's desire to negotiate money we owe, the rights of migrants and Ireland's borders before talking about a trade deal. / Today, the Brexit secretary became the pussycat of the summer - in the eyes of Brussels - as he declared his pleasure that Brexit negotiations would indeed be in the sequence desired by the rest of the EU.
The course of Brexit was set in the hours and days after the 2016 referendum. / It was at 6:22 a.m. on June 24, 2016 — 59 minutes before the official tally was unveiled — that the European Council sent its first “lines to take” to the national governments that make up the EU.
Lord Howard told Sky News that Theresa May would show the same "resolve" over Gibraltar as Margaret Thatcher had with "another Spanish speaking country" over the Falklands.

In the @FT actor, Michael Douglas, says the following to @MattGarrahan about Brexit. / He’s right. It’s crazy not to be questioning the ‘bill of goods’ people were mis sold.

Closer alignment between a Labour government and the EU is a certainty. But the divisive binary choices of 2016 are ancient history.
A report from the Nuffield Trust has concluded that the UK is facing “constantly elevated medicine shortages,” including some antibiotics and epilepsy drugs, which are being fuelled by Brexit.
‘The medicines supply chain is broken at every level,’ warns Dr Leyla Hannbeck.
Zookeepers in the South East say post-Brexit red tape is threatening their work to protect endangered species. / They say importing animals from EU countries has become 'hugely complicated and time consuming' and are being blocked from importing them as breeding partners.
What, then, of the UK? Despite the UK technically being free of Brussels ‘red tape’, the EU remains its chief export market. That means British businesses have little choice but to follow new EU regulations – on packaging, due diligence, and much else – to maintain market access. And so, EU regulations become de facto UK ones.
