Time is running out and so too is patience – as the European Union’s chief negotiator declared there had been no real progress in the post-Brexit trade talks with the UK before a potentially make or break summit later this month.
Michel Barnier said the UK had shown no real desire to explore compromises and was constantly trying to backtrack on commitments which Boris Johnson made last year.
The UK said today that progress was limited but the tone of talks had actually been positive, adding that things would have to “intensify and accelerate” if there was to be any chance of agreement.
