Brexit talks stymied by “irrationality” of UK Brexit negotiators – MacManus

July 24, 2020

The Sinn Fein MEP Chris MacManus is calling on the government to better prepare in the event of no trade deal being brokered between the EU and the UK.


His warnings follow comments by the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier. Yesterday Mr Barnier said a trade deal between the EU and the UK was ‘unlikely’ following the latest round of Brexit talks between both sides.


Mr Barnier said two issues are causing particular problems. They are fair competition and the level playing field between EU and UK businesses. The other issue is access to British fishing waters.


Chris MacManus says the talks are being stymied by difficult negotiators on the British side.
