May to broach major Brexit debate next week

The address, to be held in Florence on 22 September, is likely to be seen as a bid to mangle the deadlock in divorce talks, which resume in Brussels 3 days later.

The negotiations are faltering, with the EU observant after the latest turn last month that there had been “no wilful progress” on pivotal areas.

And European Commission boss Jean-Claude Juncker has questioned Brexit Secretary David Davis’ commitment to the talks, new papers have revealed. On Wednesday, he pronounced Britons will “soon regret” Brexit.

EU officials contend they can't pierce on to plead a future attribute until “sufficient progress” has been done on 3 priority issues: the rights of expatriates, the Irish limit and a financial settlement, or “Brexit bill”.

The UK believes the two phases – subdivision and future attribute – are “inextricably linked”, and has called on Brussels to show some flexibility.

The financial allotment – with the EU believed to be awaiting a remuneration of around £50bn or some-more to cover remaining UK liabilities – has emerged as a major stumbling block, and the Prime Minister may demeanour to make a breakthrough there.

The UK has pronounced it will honour its obligations but pronounced the epoch of big payments to Brussels ends with Brexit. No figure has been strictly made.

The choice of venue – Florence, the Renaissance city steeped in European story – is not accidental.

Mrs May’s orator said: “The PM wanted to give a debate on the UK’s future attribute with Europe in its chronological heart.

“The UK has had low informative and mercantile ties travelling centuries with Florence, a city famous for its chronological trade power.

“As the UK leaves the EU we will keep those close ties. As the Prime Minister has pronounced many times, we are leaving the EU, not Europe.”

The next turn of talks is now scheduled for the week of 25 September, and was pushed back from the strange date a week before.

Mrs May’s central orator pronounced the check was not caused by the timing of the her speech.

“Both sides staid on the date for that turn after discussions between comparison officials in recognition that some-more time would give negotiators coherence to make serve progress,” he said.
