EU Brexit man Michel Barnier with some comments

  • Brexit agreement must be concise and binding
  • Friday’s agreement was an important step
  • Everyone needs to remain cautious on brexit
  • UK must not backtrack, the negotiating points are closed
  • Uk must clarify what it wants from a trade deal
  • Brexit treaty will come with a declaration on trade

Ireland’s Varadkar also out;

  • EU/UK relationship should be much as it is now
  • Last week’s deal is a political agreement

Barnier is taking the same line we heard earlier today for other EU officials, who alos said that the EU may not publish thier Brexit guidelines until March.
