Brexit: UK seeks defence partnership with EU

'Throw off the bowlines' While a future EU-UK trade deal remains a distant prospect, Juncker called on the bloc to seal trade deals with Australia and New Zealand by the end of his mandate.

And it warns that European military technology could be undermined if there is no customs deal.

The EU negotiator listed commitments he claimed Britain had agreed to that extend beyond the end of the current budget period in 2020 - and rounded on the country for refusing to honour them and said Britain must continue providing funds for Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific through the European Development Fund.

And then in June of past year, after a campaign as fraught with misinformation as our presidential election, and an equally slim margin in results, 52 percent of voters chose to leave the European Union with the other 48 percent wishing to remain.

The main opposition Labour party had voiced its objection to the bill, arguing that its provisions to smooth the transfer of European Union laws represent an unacceptable expansion of executive power.

But the raft of changes proposed by Tories including former ministers Kenneth Clarke, Dominic Grieve, Nicky Morgan and Anna Soubry, serves notice on the Prime Minister that she faces a rough ride in the remaining stages of the Bill's passage through Parliament.

Labour lawmaker Chris Bryant said such powers would lead to "a unsafe spiral of autocracy".

Hurricane Irma forces Miami woman to deliver her own baby

He added: "There was no rebellion from Government at all and seven Labour MPs voted with the Government".

Ireland is set to get two additional seats in the European Parliament once Brexit is legally completed, Mairead McGuinness MEP and Vice-President of the European Parliament confirmed today, ahead of a debate in Strasbourg.

But Mr Coveney argued that voting to leave the EU was never explicitly a vote to leave the Customs Union or Single Market.

EU officials and diplomats expect May to make a keynote speech around September 21 and believe she may use it to outline the kind of transition arrangements Britain wants once it leaves the Union in March 2019 and before a long-term treaty setting out a free trade pact can be fully negotiated and implemented. A finance minister with fresh powers.

And, in an area that is bound to cause controversy among the right-wing press and hardcore Brexiteers, the United Kingdom is also offering to continue contributing to the EU's defence missions and operations with military assets and planning.

However, unfortunately, it can not be excluded that numerous responsible people in the British government obviously have unrealistic assumptions concerning the possible deal.

Brexit Secretary David Davis denies this, saying the bill is a "pragmatic and sensible" way to deal with the huge amount of European Union legislation that must be incorporated into British law. "Without it, we would be approaching a cliff edge of uncertainty which is not in the interest of anyone".
