European Union can 'go whistle' for Brexit bill

13 July 2017

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is due to meet the EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier in Brussels tomorrow, said if his party were in government then he would "pay what we are legally required to pay".

He insisted that the European Court of Justice (ECJ) should have jurisdiction over their fate in future, dismissing May's proposal that it should be under the control of British courts.

The Welsh first minister said he hoped to demonstrate to Mr Barnier that there were "parts of the United Kingdom that are prepared to engage constructively with the EU-27, rather than indulge in playing to the gallery".

"I say to the other parties in the House of Commons, read this report, engage in the hard issues it raises, come forward with your own views and ideas".

Britain's business minister Greg Clark and health minister Jeremy Hunt - both among the "remainers" in Theresa May's cabinet - raised the possibility earlier this month of the European Union retaining some regulatory control over areas such as medicines.

The British foreign secretary had said EU negotiators could "go whistle" if they expected Britain to pay an "extortionate" bill when the United Kingdom left the union.

There has been speculation that the so-called "divorce bill" will amount to anything between €40 billion and €100 billion (US$46-114 billion).

Since David Davis was appointed to the position of Brexit Secretary a year ago, he has consistently consulted the devolved administrations on what they want the British Government to achieve during the discussions.

Green eventually said a forthcoming report by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility would cover the "fiscal" possibilities of no European Union deal.

A disorderly Brexit would risk disruption of medical supplies across EU-UK borders, with border checks, and possible extensive retesting once across the border.

"The best possible relationship with the European Union would be to remain a member of the European Union", he said.

"It's not a ransom, it's not an exit bill, it's not revenge".

The EU is blamed today for the anxiety felt by half a million children in Britain whose future residency rights are being used as "bargaining chips" in the Brexit talks.

Mr Barnier said honouring these costs was a matter of "trust".

The EU's Chief Negotiator reiterated that he is willing to listen to different points of view in the British debate on #Brexit.

"I have always made clear that I will listen to different points on view in the British debate", said Barnier, but "of course, I will only negotiate with the United Kingdom government", he added.

All EU nationals lawfully resident for at least five years will be able to apply for "settled status" and be able to bring over spouses and children.
