EU's Michel Barnier Signals Slow Progress Over Brexit Talks

The third round of high-level talks is ongoing this week and Juncker reinforced the comments of his chief negotiator Michel Barnier on Monday that the May's government is too slow out of the blocks and that key separation issues need to be settled before both sides can assess a future trade and political relationship.
Britain has published papers on everything from future customs arrangements to data, going beyond a brief set by the European Union to first make progress on three priority areas - the rights of expatriates, Britain's border with European Union state Ireland and a financial settlement.
Standing beside Barnier, Davis said London wanted the European Union to show "imagination and flexibility" in the negotiations.
After meeting with the UK government's Secretary of State for Northern Ireland earlier this week, Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney said that they "noted that the issues for Northern Ireland can only be addressed through the ongoing EU-UK negotiations".
After the transitional period, Sir Keir said, the new relationship with the EU would "retain the benefits of the customs union and the single market", but how that would be achieved "is secondary to the outcome".
Little as yet seems to have been settled on the remit of the European Court of Justice, with EU officials insisting that it is the only way to protect and enforce the rights of EU citizens living in the United Kingdom after Brexit, while the United Kingdom accuses Mr Barnier of "massively over-egging" his demands for money.
He also said that the European Union would "not accept that separation issues are not addressed properly".
Speaking in Brussels, Barnier says "I am ready to intensify negotiations".
He said: "To be honest, I'm concerned". The EU wants to make progress on issues such as social security coordination, the status of frontier workers and on professional qualifications.
He said that if the sides were to make progress, it would "require flexibility and imagination from both sides".
As Brexit talks are about to resume in Brussels with Brexit Secretary David Davies, the Labour Party opposition backs Single Market membership for a transitional period beyond March 2019.
"That means we would seek to remain in a Customs Union with the EU and within the Single Market during this period".
The Labour Party is Britain has made what is being described as a dramatic policy shift towards Brexit.
Field said: "There are a lot of people around who are wolves in sheep's clothing - their main intention is to keep Britain in the EU".
As for Britain's divorce settlement - estimated at up to €100bn in Brussels but much less at €40bn according to reports in London - EU officials said the talks were not about fixing a number but about agreeing how to work out the bill.
"We can only do that by mapping out a measured and detailed strategy for Brexit rather than simply taking a wrecking ball approach to negotiations".
They said that it smacked of "magical thinking", and they have accused London of using the Northern Irish peace process as a bargaining chip in the talks.
