United Kingdom calls for close economic ties in Brexit white paper

Explainer Why is Northern Ireland such a big deal in Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations

But yesterday British diplomats said they believed the new white paper on the future relationship would change the "dynamic" of talks and see Brussels look at their previous proposal in a new light.

Raab took over as minister in charge of Brexit negotiations on Monday, a day after his predecessor David Davis resigned over his disagreement with May's plans to negotiate a "common rulebook for all goods" in a combined customs territory.

Under the new arrangement, Britain proposes safeguards, such as a bilateral agreement to make the system "stabler, transparent and predictable".

But in other areas, the 98-page document outlined the government's plans to retain the closest possible ties with the bloc, including participating in its agencies for chemicals, aviation and medicines in a move aimed at pleasing business.

In eliminating tariffs, quotas and rules of origin requirements, it would protect supply chains that criss-cross the European Union and just-in-time processes vital to, for example, the automotive industry. The UK is also keen to remain party to the Dublin Regulation that governs migration and asylum rules across the EU.

It would use technology to apply British tariffs to goods intended for Britain, and the EU's tariffs on those intended for the bloc.

The government also appeared to recognise public concerns that Brexit negotiations need to start in earnest very soon in order for there to be no data "cliff edge", saying it was "ready to begin preliminary discussions on an adequacy assessment so that a data protection agreement is in place by the end of the implementation period at the latest".

Britain would leave the EU's Common Agricultural Policy and Common Fisheries Policy.

Harvey Weinstein admits he offered acting jobs for sex

President Trump said he thinks Boris Johnson would make a great prime minister, and the Britain's trade relationship with the USA could come to an end if British Prime Minister Theresa May follows through with the so-called "soft" Brexit blueprint.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the backbench European Research Group, said the proposals amount to "vassalage" and "a bad deal for Britain".

Davis' replacement, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, said the plans called for an "innovative and unprecedented economic partnership" between Britain and the EU. It also proposed a close cooperation with the European Maritime Safety Agency and new arrangements for a closer association with the Euratom nuclear regulator than any other non-EU country. "It's that simple", said Catherine McGuinness, the corporation's policy chair.

The EU and Britain would establish a political governing body and an official-level technical committee to oversee the deal. Where the United Kingdom and the EU had agreed to retain a "common rulebook", the United Kingdom would recognise that the European Court of Justice is supreme on the interpretation of EU law, and thus in these instances there should be the option to refer questions to the ECJ, either by mutual consent from a "Joint Committee", or from the arbitration panel.

Both sides would need to agree on a means of resolving disputes, including through binding independent arbitration.

They must decide how far to accept the UK's demands for bespoke access to the EU's markets in areas like financial services.

- Britain will also seek to ensure British and European Union citizens can still use each other's health services when overseas, and foreign residents can still access their pension entitlements.
