Brexit transition talks take place in Brussels

Ian Dunt was scathing about David Davis Brexit speech

"Our intention is to mimic the breadth of our current arrangements, from goods to agriculture to financial services, meaning that every business, small or large, will be able to go on trading with the European Union as it does today until it's time to make any changes necessary for the future partnership", the letter said.

"We want the Germans to accept a vehicle that was inspected in Coventry or wherever and we would accept one that was inspected in Munich". Even Theroux, writing a mere 35 years ago, speaks authoritatively of British national characteristics being ever-present in quotidian life quite as much as the symbolism of the state.

The bus carrying me from Glasgow to East Kilbride broke down beside an isolated shopping parade, and in an opulently appointed South Asian restaurant, I ate a late supper beneath a framed quote from Virginia Woolf hymning the good life, which had been translated into Sanskrit.

Yet 69 per cent disagreed that they were confident in the government's ability to do this, with 53 per cent regarding free movement and access of skilled labour as a key goal and 28 per cent placing their hopes on securing access to the free or single market.

Rees-Mogg, chairman of the influential European Research Group of backbench Tory Eurosceptics, also told the PM that "the leader is important, the party is more important".

Knicks exploring options to part with Joakim Noah
Waive :?The Knicks could choose to waive Noah, though they'd likely attempt to negotiate a buyout before exploring this option. The officially stated reason for Noah's absence from the Knicks' last two games was "personal reasons".

May was similarly glowing in her praise of what she called a "really special relationship between the U.K. and the United States".

Did Davis Confirm Hammond's Position or Fudge?

He added: "It's not exactly the same as membership but it is very, very similar".

The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, told business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland that Britain's trading relationship with the European Union would only face "very modest" changes after Brexit.

Of course they can, Mr Barnier said.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny arrested in Moscow after Putin protest
The protests Sunday were unusual in their scope, with Navalny supporters organizing some 115 events across the country. Police also detained several employees of his Anti-Corruption Foundation as well as supporters, Navalny's team said.

The transition agreement will be part of the withdrawal agreement.

"In March next year, it will be the end", he said at a conference on the last day of his trip.

EU diplomats also dismissed the idea of Britain having a veto over EU laws after it leaves on March 29 next year, although the transition offer does give London a chance to air its views in EU meetings where its interests are at stake - and notably on issues of immediate economic impact, such as EU fishing quotas.

The UK, as already a third country, will no longer participate in the institutions and the decision-making of the EU.

The EU is willing to be flexible on the duration and other terms of a Brexit transition period, which could include letting London sign trade deals, according to a document due to be formally endorsed by EU ministers on Monday. He said, though, that "they would not enter into force" until the transition period is over, likely by early 2021. "There will naturally be some distance between our positions" at the start of the negotiation. "That is obviously what will be negotiated".

Sunny and warm today but the rain returns this weekend
Winds will pick up this afternoon out of the northwest with sustained winds 15-20 miles per hour and stronger gusts. Monday night , the low will be around 23 with partly cloudy skies, according to the weather service.

He stressed that European Union law would have to continue to apply in the United Kingdom during the transition, including any changes that were agreed during that period, as Britain would continue to enjoy the full economic benefits of European Union membership.
