EU presses Britain to get its act together for Brexit talks

Sveva Terracina | 11 Giugno, 2017, 07:04

Alan Matthews, a professor at Trinity College in the Irish capital Dublin, said Britain›s trade position with the European Union gives it "some bargaining power" entering the Brexit negotiations due to start after the June 8 British elections.

The UK's credit rating will not be affected by the hung parliament resulting from Theresa May's hapless snap election, credit agency S&P said on Friday, though it warned the possibility of a delay to Brexit negotiations and chances of yet another election meant it had a negative outlook.

"The timeframe set by Article 50 of the Treaty leaves us with no time to lose", he added, referring to a deadline of March 2019 when Britain will no longer be a member of the bloc, whether or not a deal is reached to avoid legal uncertainties. Nearly unanimously, calls for the U.K.to quickly form a government were ultimately calls for beginning Brexit talks as soon as possible.

Austrian counterpart Sebastian Kurz tweeted: "It is important that Brexit negotiations proceed as planned and that we quickly achieve legal certainty for citizens".

Steven Blockmans of the Center for European Policy Studies said that because of the current chaos, "it is questionable whether that period of time will be sufficient in order to strike a good deal".

Guenther Oettinger, EU-Commissioner for Digital Economy and Energy, during the party conference. "With a weak negotiating partner, there's a danger the negotiations will turn out badly".


Europe's top economic and finance official, Pierre Moscovici, said the election result was likely to have an impact "on the character of the negotiations".

Verhofstadt, the former Prime Minister of Belgium, added that if the Conservative Party focuses on attacking Brussels and the European Union, "they will just get deeper in self-inflicted trouble. Will the minority government deal with the UK's fiscal issues, for example, proper funding for the National Health Service?" May then called a snap election hoping for a bigger majority to strengthen her hand in negotiations. "We might see a softening of the stance in response to this election result", said Simon Hix, politics professor at the London School of Economics.

"EU did not want #Brexit, but has been prepared to negotiate it since past year", tweeted Siegfried Muresan, spokesperson for the European Parliament's largest grouping, the center-right European People's Party (EPP).

With the loss of an absolute Conservative majority in Parliament, on Friday morning the only foreseeable way her party could form a governing coalition was in partnership with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionists, a faction deeply skeptical of the "hard Brexit" May and her Conservative allies have defended for months. Talks are scheduled to begin a week on Monday. "It is not only about the United Kingdom, but also about the future of Europe", he told The Associated Press. "We know when they must end".

"EU ready to negotiate since a year ago".

Some analysts said it was hard to see May's Conservative party softening its line significantly on remaining in the European Union single market because it would mean accepting the free movement of people and that would make it much harder to control immigration.
