British cabinet presses ahead with PM's Brexit blueprint

26 September, 2018, 10:01 | Author: Regina Silva

The cabinet remains fully behind Theresa May's Brexit policy in the face of growing calls within her party to change direction, No 10 has insisted.

Former Brexit Secretary David Davis, who has indicated he will vote against the plans, said recently the ERG had about 30 to 40 members, with a core group of about a dozen.

This would be while pursuing "regulatory freedom and trade independence". "Clearly there are at least two alternatives to Chequers", he writes.

Crucially, she will also have a face-to-face meeting with US President Donald trump to discuss a future trade deal between Britain and the US.

Raab also said a Canada-style trade deal was now "off the table" because the EU caveat was a backstop on the Irish border, effectively keeping Northern Ireland in the customs union and breaking up the UK.

The Prime Minister is in NY to hold talks about chemical weapons and the Salisbury attack by the Russians.

"Now is the time for cool heads".

In the statement, May added: "I have said many times that these negotiations would be tough, and they were always bound to be toughest in the final straight".

Ahead of the meeting on Monday, there had been media speculation of differing opinions among some of her top team, with claims that some ministers wanted her to abandon the plan agreed in July at a meeting at her country retreat Chequers, Xinhua reported.

"But what's also clear is that many in Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP are trying to thwart Brexit at every step and seeking to exploit this moment for political gain".

Adding: "One thing that I would say though is that the European Union has a habit of spurning democratic votes, whether in referendums in this country - and they're trying to do that to some degree - or the rest of the EU". This is the moment to set aside our differences and come together in national unity.

European Union negotiators are ready to offer Theresa May a free-trade area after Brexit but say that, contrary to her "Chequers" plan, there must be a customs border that will make trade less than "frictionless", according to an internal EU document seen by Reuters.

Downing Street was not immediately available to comment on the report. Political pundits have noted that Salzburg has, instead, driven a wedge between the United Kingdom and the EU.

"Crucially we also have a plan to deliver an economy that is knowledge-rich, highly innovative, highly skilled and high quality with low tax and smart regulation".
