Sweden BEGS UK to remain in single market to make Brexit CHEAPER for EU member states
Official Brexit talks started on Monday as David Davis travelled to Brussels to negotiate on behalf of the UK.
The Brexit Secretary was welcomed by Michel Barnier, as the EU negotiator told reporters: “Today we are launching the negotiations on the orderly withdrawal of the UK from the EU.
“Our objective is clear, we must first tackle the uncertainties caused by Brexit. First for citizens, but also for the beneficiaries of the EU policies and for the impact on borders, in particular, Ireland.
“I hope that today we can identify priorities and a timetable that would allow me to report to the European Council later this week that we had a constructive opening of negotiations.”
