Brexit talks’ belated progress

Responding to the European Commission’s announcement this morning that "sufficient progress" has been made in the first phase of the Brexit talks, Alex Mayer MEP for the East of England said:

“About time too! While it is good that progress has been made, this can hardly be described as a success. It has taken over five hundred days to be in a position for the real negotiations to begin. 

"I'm worried this first stage of the deal leaves many details and questions unresolved, for example on how citizens' rights are to be enforced and exactly how a customs border with Ireland can be avoided.

"Plus we've found out that the Cabinet hasn't agreed on what kind of trading relationship they want with the rest of Europe yet. Ridiculous! What have they been up to all this time?"
