European Union executive to seek talks with United States over metals tariffs: Katainen

EU Throws Down Gauntlet to May

Britain must "translate speeches into treaties" and come up with a detailed plan for its post-Brexit ties with the EU, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Tuesday.

Mr Juncker was speaking in the European Parliament in Strasbourg when he mentioned the 29 March 2019 Brexit deadline, which was greeted with cheers by Ukip MEPs.

On a visit to Dublin, EU Council President Donald Tusk, who coordinates policy between the 27 EU nations that Britain is negotiating with, said it's up to May's government to propose a "specific and realistic solution" to avoid a hard border and that without a solution it is "very difficult to imagine substantive progress".

The Donegal TD said the guidelines give a central prominence to fishing in the talks process moving forward, the key concerns of the separation of fisheries from other sectors as well as the retention of existing reciprocal access to fishing waters and resources are fully recognised in the draft text. The commission says a more unified, pan-EU approach would save European Union borrowers an estimated 1.5 billion euros to 1.9 billion euros annually.

"One can not have at the same time the status of a third country and demand at the same time the advantages of the (European) Union", Barnier told a plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

Up until then I had considered the issue of the border to be being overplayed, both by the Irish, and by British "Remainers" desperate to find any means of halting Brexit.

In the speech May suggested Britain would commit to keeping some European Union regulations and standards while reserving the option to diverge in others.

It was not clear why a clearances issue would have warranted the abrupt removal of McEntee from the White House grounds. McEntee, 27, walked on at UConn and was the Huskies' starting quarterback in 2011, leading the team to a 5-7 record.

Michel Barnier said any attempt by Britain to gain a competitive edge through the use of what is termed "dumping" would jeopardize hopes the country has for a smooth and orderly withdrawal from the EU.

The EU proposals set out a common definition for covered bonds and their features, spell out who supervises them, and introduce rules for a European covered bond "label" to reassure investors.

This economic reality confronts the Brexit negotiators, who must untwine the United Kingdom from decades of European aviation rules that have expanded traffic and ownership rights and streamlined certification and safety procedures.

Best for Britain, which has joined forces with other campaign groups and individuals, argues that the Brexit treaty "amends or replaces" EU treaties and should therefore be subject to the 2011 European Union Act, which introduced a "referendum lock" for laws with such wide-ranging consequences.

An association agreement would give "a vision, an architecture" to post-Brexit relations and avoid a repetition of the complex web of individual agreements the European Union has with Switzerland.

"You can read as many briefing documents as you like, sometimes you need to see things with your own eyes", he said.
