Britain will be subject to European Court rulings during Brexit transition - PM

May addressed Parliament on its first day back since her disastrous speech to the Conservative conference last week, which saw her bedeviled by a prankster, a sore throat and a malfunctioning set.

"It's important to continue that momentum and for the negotiations to move on to the next phase in order that we can discuss our future partnership".

Kristian Jensen told the Guardian he believed both sides should be ready to move the talks on following the concessions made in Theresa May's speech in Florence last month.

Despite the enthusiasm of the Danish minister to see negotiations speeded along as they entered their fifth round Monday, European leaders apparently still had no appetite for progress - notwithstanding May's promise of a long transition period and a Brexit "divorce bill" payment, which went down badly with many in the UK.

Also, EU officials are slightly disappointed with the nearly no change in British negotiating position despite May's promising speech in Florence.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn accused the government of making a mess of the Brexit negotiations.

"So it's not unlikely that they again shy away from what are the economic imperatives and we end up cliff-edging by political default."
However, she said in a statement that it was "patently obvious" that the EU's test of "sufficient progress" on key divorce issues were not yet met.

"It's the responsible approach".

Businesses in Germany will support Brussels as Britain negotiates a Brexit deal with the bloc according to an expert for the Centre for European Reform.

"This could have serious consequences", he said.

Photo Britain's Brexit minister David Davis and European Union's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier have entered the fifth rounds of negotiations.

However, it will be the last time the two sides are scheduled to meet before an European Union summit on 19 October.

The proposals for a customs bill were published alongside those for new trade legislation that would allow Britain to enter into new worldwide free trade agreements once it has left the EU.

At the moment, the real power in British politics now lies with Boris Johnson, the pro-Brexit Foreign Secretary, who for the past month has been openly challenging May's authority by setting out his own red lines on what would be an acceptable deal with the EU.

Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg told the Observer: "The claim that article 50 is irreversible was always a myth put about by Brexiters who want to stop the British people from changing their minds". In London, they want to proceed to this stage as quickly as possible, while in Brussels they think that the time has not come for it.

For many, ending with a legal void remains far-fetched.
