United Kingdom tries to counter claims it's unprepared for Brexit talks

Jobs in UK after Brexit news

Britain is keen to start talking about its post-Brexit relationship with Europe, wary of the need to reassure anxious businesses, citizens and investors.

But in a show of strength after a summer dominated by cabinet splits, Chancellor Philip Hammond and International Development Secretary Liam Fox announced there will be a transitional period when Britain finally leaves the UK. The two leading politicians said the government wanted to ensure "there will not be a cliff-edge when we leave the EU".

The article's publication comes as the prime minister returns from holiday and ministers prepare to publish papers on Britain's Brexit plans covering the Irish border, the customs union, fisheries, and agriculture over the next 10 days.

"We've been crystal clear that issues around our withdrawal and our future partnership are inextricably linked, and the negotiations so far have reinforced that view", a source in Britain's Brexit department said.

"These papers show we are ready to broaden out the negotiations. And has that moment arrived yet?" she wrote in the Mail on Sunday.

The British government is fighting back against criticisms that it is divided and unprepared for Brexit.

The Government has recently moved to clarify that freedom of movement between the European Union and the United Kingdom will definitely end in 2019, with the three million European Union citizens already in Britain having to apply for inclusion on a "settled status" register if they wish to remain.

The Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported last week, citing three unnamed sources, Britain is willing to pay up to 40 billion euros ($47.1 billion) to the European Union as the bloc wants considerable progress on settling Britain's liabilities before Brexit talks resume.

The next round of talks is due at the end of the month, with both sides looking for progress towards a solution to three of Brexit's thorniest problems: how much Britain should pay to leave, what rights British and European Union citizens will have, and how to manage a land border to the bloc in Ireland.

In a similar vein pro-EU voters do not want to see Britain continue to pay vast sums into Brussels coffers for continued "access" to the bloc, with most saying such contributions should be capped at £1 billion a year. But, Brussels has insisted that progress must be made on divorce arrangements first. We should. But democracy did not end on June 23 past year.

The UK formally triggered the Brexit process on March 29 and divorce negotiations officially began on June 19.

Mr Davis is due to embark on a third round of Brexit talks with the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier in the Belgian capital at the end of August.
