Britain's Labour Party has a new Brexit plan for the UK

Keir Starmer, shadow Brexit secretary with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in Brussels earlier this year to meet EU negotiators Labour makes dramatic shift on Brexit and single market

The EU, however, wants to have "sufficient progress" on a clear divorce first with Britain before looking at a future relationship.

"However, with growing concerns being expressed in recent weeks about the lack of clarity and certainty from the government, particularly from business (the Brexit Secretary David Davis recently raised eyebrows for defending the inevitability of "constructive ambiguity" in the negotiations"), the Labour clarification, will come as a welcome development to many.

Among those issues is the conundrum of the now invisible border between European Union member state Ireland and Britain's province of Northern Ireland, a matter fraught with economic consequences and politically complexities.

Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasutoshi Nishimura said the government would do its utmost to gather information on the Brexit negotiations, which he said remain "fluid", as well as support Japanese corporate activity there.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michael Barnier, has insisted progress must be made on sorting the UK's "divorce" bill before talks can advance to future trade.

British officials arrive in Brussels on Monday hoping to push the European Union towards talks about post-Brexit ties, which the bloc refuses to launch until there is a deal on London's exit bill and other "divorce" questions.

At a press conference in Brussels to mark the start of the third round of Article 50 talks Michel Barnier said it was impossible to make serious progress on negotiating the UK's exit from the European Union while the British position lacked detail. We must start negotiating seriously.


European Union officials insist not enough progress has been made on the likes of the border and citizens' rights - and this should be the focus for both parties.

He did say it was a central issue for the referendum on the 23 June 2016. He has now betrayed every Labour voter at the General Election. On Monday, Germany's main business lobby group criticized the British government for what it called an unclear stance on the future. The British government source said this week's talks would be mostly technical and would be "a stepping stone to more substantial talks in September".

The U.K.'s opposition Labour party has announced a dramatic shift in its policy on Brexit, arguing that to protect jobs, Britain must remain in the EU's single market and customs union in a transitional period beyond March 2019.

Labour has changed its stance on a transition period after Brexit, supporting membership of the single market and customs union for up to five years after the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

"We want to lock in the points where we agree, unpick the areas where we disagree, and make further progress on a range of issues", he said Monday.

Let me make one or two salient (I hope) observations about what some are calling a significant change in Labour's approach to the UK's imminent departure from the EU.

"If you leave big, sensitive political issues to the end of the negotiations - such as the financial settlement - you increase the risk of failure", a senior official said.
