Theresa May's White Paper Pleases Neither Brussels Nor Brexiteers - HuffPost Verdict

The EU-27 has been clear all along that the four pillars of the single market - the free movement on goods, services, people and capital - are non-derogable.

However, Ms Cameron added that the labour-intensive Scottish hospitality, manufacturing, oil and gas, and food processing sectors "need urgent clarity on the longer-term arrangements for the recruitment of workers from European Union and non-EU countries".

A banged up vehicle decorated with a banner saying "For sale - but no one's buying May's Brexit banger" is driven around Parliament Square in London.

The government's proposal for a new financial services arrangement post-Brexit will effectively make it more hard for Britain's banks, insurers and asset managers to do business across the European Union.

But the Tanaiste believes the resignations of Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson were a positive change.

"I would have done it much differently".

May insisted earlier Thursday that her plan was exactly what Britons had voted for in the 2016 referendum.

In response, May said the proposal was "delivering on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders". "That is exactly what we will do".

Banks and insurers in the City of London have been playing it safe by moving staff and opening hubs in the European Union to make sure they still have access irrespective of the shape of Britain's new trading relationship with the bloc post Brexit.

The Brexit document proposes keeping Britain and the European Union in a free market for goods, with a more distant relationship for services.

"There's a lot of new players about, we're still feeling our way in, it's the first game", he added. We take 2-0 but I'm slightly disappointed we didn't win it more comfortably.

"As the EU's gateway to capital, the United Kingdom is a significant trading partner for the bloc".

The plans laid out Thursday in a 98-page government paper gave Britain's most detailed answer yet to the question of what will replace them.

As part of the UK's proposed economic partnership, a "common rulebook" for goods including agri-food is put forward, covering only those rules necessary to provide for frictionless trade at the border.

The publication of the document comes one day after Prime Minister Theresa May and her Spanish counterpart Pedro Sanchez agreed to continue "constructive dialogue" for the benefit of communities on both sides of the border.

The plan falls short of the current "passporting" rights that enable the country's financial services industry to trade freely with the EU.

Britain wants a new treaty allowing it to continue using EU internal security measures such as the European Arrest Warrant and to participate in agencies such as Europol.

They must decide how far to accept the UK's demands for bespoke access to the EU's markets in areas like financial services.

Director and chief executive Liz Cameron said: "We welcome the detail provided on the UK Government's approach to mobility, including the statement of intent to operate a UK-EU Youth Mobility Scheme and visa-free travel for tourism and short-term business activity". It also proposes new bodies to help interpret rules and regulations and to resolve disputes, but Britain will still pay due regard to the European Court of Justice.

That is seen by the Brexiters as - in the spiky characterisation of Jacob Rees-Mogg - "the greatest vassalage since King John paid homage to Phillip ll at Le Goulet in 1200".

In a long-awaited white paper policy document, her government said its negotiating position had evolved.
