( October 21, 2017, London, Sri Lanka Guardian) At the last day of the two day EU Summit of 27 leaders in Brussels, without Prime Minister May on Friday 20th October. there appears to be confirmation of trade talks with Britain beginning as early as December 2017.

The EU Council President Donald Tusk said: “talks about a possible trade deal with UK could begin as early as December.

Markets responded immediately with the Pound soaring against all major currencies.

“At no moment has Theresa May ever raised a “no deal” as an option,” stated President Macron of France at his Press Conference after the end of the meeting. He went on to state “it is not about making concessions”.

But we are reliably informed that May has backed down and is ready to pay more than the Euro 18 billion she offered in her Florence speech, and this could be as much as another £20 billion.

Phase One of the Brexit talks between Michel Barnier EU negotiator and British Minister David Davis is about “providing clarity and certainty to people and business in UK and the EU”.

Phase Two of the talks is taking it on to trade talks and other issues.

An agreement arrived at before Christmas would delight the City.
