Davis: ‘No excuses’ for EU to hold up Brexit negotiations

Brexit Minister David Davis has that he expects a “busy week” of negotiations with the European Union and that there are “no excuses” for talks to not finally progress.

“The UK is absolutely committed to work through the detail. We are laying out concrete proposals and there are no excuses for standing in the way of progress.

“It will take pragmatism on both sides to make headway and I hope we can achieve that this week.”

With Theresa May and the British government having backed down and now apparently ready to cough up billions, it will be interesting to see if talks actually do progress. The clock is ticking, little progress has been made and it appears increasingly as though some in Brussels have no interest in a sensible deal.
