UK Expected To Unveil Post-Brexit NI Border Plan This Week

Stormont-castle

Negotiations between Brexit Secretary David Davis and European Union officials are set to resume at the end of this month.

The chancellor Philip Hammond and global trade secretary Liam Fox - prominent Remain and Leave advocates respectively - have jointly confirmed there will be a transition period after leaving the European Union and that the country will leave the single market and customs union. Supposedly he was looking for a compromise to keep Britain within the customs union and single market as long as possible.

"The DUP has been discussing these matters with the government for some time and we support the concept of maintaining a common travel area between the United Kingdom and Irish Republic and share the government's view that modern technology can help with monitoring the movement of goods across the border in the event of the UK reaching a new free trade and customs agreement with the European Union", he said. "He has now teamed up with one of the more extreme and ideological supporters of a hard Brexit".

In contrast, the joint move was welcomed by the pro-Brexit Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson who said it was the "right way forward". "Get job done + on with Global Britain", he wrote on Twitter.

Hammond and Fox wrote in the article, that a time-limited interim period must be established to ensure proper Brexit.

"But we are also clear that during this period our borders must continue to operate smoothly; goods bought on the internet must still cross borders; businesses must still be able to supply their customers across the European Union and our innovative, world-leading companies must be able to hire the talent they need, including from within the EU".

Three men who could upstage Spieth and McIlroy
Among the other contenders for victory this week are the US's Rickie Fowler, who is still looking for an elusive first major. Hogan and Woods landed their slams the first time they had a chance, each winning a British Open to get the fourth leg.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Soubry said: "If the prime minister or her successor [in the event of May standing down] is not prepared to confront the ideologues, I gravely fear that the party could split - and that would change Britain's political landscape completely".

"The answer to the first question is "it is not impossible"; the answer to the second is "no".

Brexit Secretary David Davis said exactly how the transitional arrangements would work had still to be determined.

"We need to get on with negotiating the bigger issues around our future partnership to ensure we get a deal that delivers a strong United Kingdom and EU", Brexit minister David Davis said in a statement, according to Reuters.

"Nobody voted to be poorer previous year but that is exactly what will happen if the Government continues to put Eurosceptic dogma ahead of the national interest". "The referendum will be no excuse if the country is driven off a cliff".
