‘Not What People Voted For’ - Brexiteers Slam 'Embarrassing' EU Divorce Plans

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

The white paper acknowledges there will be more barriers to the European Union market post-Brexit but makes maintaining trade ties for goods a priority and details a plan for a facilitated customs arrangement with the EU.

The stance highlights how precarious May's position has become.

Mrs May is still pressing on with her Brexit plan despite the resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson.

Trump's visit to Britain followed two days of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium, where the USA president shook up the conference with rhetoric about other members failing to meet fiscal defense requirements, the possibility that he could end the United States' 70-year membership in the alliance and Germany being "captive" to Russian energy.

The so-called Brexit White Paper has already shaken up Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership following resignations of her Brexit minister David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who disagreed with what is seen as a much closer alignment with the European Union (EU) than desired, as it would reportedly make trade deals with other countries more hard.

"It didn't put in what I said about the prime minister, and I said tremendous things".

At its heart is a proposal for a new Britain-EU "free trade area", with interlinked customs regimes, and identical regulations for industrial goods and agri-food.

The British government is proposing a wide-ranging economic and trading relationship, with interlinked customs regimes and identical regulations for industrial goods and agricultural foodstuffs.

The government has promised a Migration bill to be published in September 2018 but states that students and skilled workers would be able to study and work in the UK.

Crucially, in a move that could anger Brexiteers, if there is a dispute over the interpretation of EU rules that Britain has agreed to adhere to, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) could have the final say.

But while the United Kingdom insists that's a generous offer, the bloc considers it a bare minimum and it's unlikely to trigger any wholesale concessions from its side.

In the piece, Trump gave May advice on how to handle the exit from the European Union and said he "would have done it much differently".

It also says Britain wants to participate in EU agencies that authorise goods: the European Chemicals Agency, the European Aviation Safety Agency and the European Medicines Agency.

For now, May doesn't face an immediate threat to her job. "I don't think we see it as rude".

At first glance, this proposal is as surprising as it is original.

The UK is seeking three agreements, on economic partnership, security and defence, and cross-cutting co-operation - monitored by a "governing body" to set the political direction of EU-UK relations and a joint committee to provide technical expertise.

On top of that, the Brexit Steering Group suggested that May's plans are incompatible with the rules of the single market.

Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage warned the Prime Minister will "destroy the Conservative Party" if she remains leader, adding that May and her Cabinet "grossly underestimate how reviled" their plans for a super-soft Brexit are with the public.
