Any Delay in Brexit Negotiations With UK Impossible - EU Parliament President

The Brexit Secretary is hoping to win round Michel Barnier over Britain's plan to guarantee the future rights of European nationals living in the United Kingdom amid deep divisions back home.

But back in London, British media were rife with talk of infighting that echoed the divisions Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative party suffered during the European Union referendum.

While Mr Barnier will hold a press conference at the close of talks on Thursday, Mr Davis' team has yet to confirm whether the minister will join him.

Common ground was very much lacking last week after British foreign minister and leading Brexiteer Boris Johnson remarked that the European Union could "go whistle" over its massive Brexit bill demand, drawing a rebuke from Barnier.

They then left the podiums without answering any questions from the fathering media, with the Frenchman saying the pair needed to work to which the Brexit secretary replied: "Work, yes that's right - work".

"For us it's incredibly important we now make good progress, that we negotiate through this and identify the differences so we can deal with them and identify the similarities so that we can reinforce them", added Davis. In particular, the delegations are expected to focus on how to manage new border arrangements, what rights EU and United Kingdom citizens will hold post-Brexit and, most controversially, how much London owes the Union.

Barnier has dismissed the British rights offer as falling short of the European Union demand that its 3 million citizens there keep all their existing rights for life and have recourse to the European Union courts to enforce those rights even after Britain has left.

He defended his position on Sunday and hit back at his critics.

Protecting the rights of all our citizens is the priority for me going into this round and I'm clear that it's something we must make real progress on.

Twice in as many days, newspapers ran hostile stories about Hammond from last week's cabinet meeting, leaked by other ministers at the table. Mr Hammond all but admitted a report he had told the cabinet that public-sector workers are "overpaid" was true - while denying he had said "even a woman" can drive a train.

He said negotiators had made a good start last month but that they would now be working on the substance of the matter. "Over the last few weeks, I've tried to advance ensuring that we achieve a Brexit that is focused on protecting our economy, protecting our jobs and making sure that we can have continued rising standards in the future". These two key players will meet regularly through the week, with the aim of keeping the talks on track. The EU remains uncertain about whether British negotiators will be able to conclude an agreement, amid deep political divides in the government on Brexit.

The Brexit Secretary said progress had to be made this month on a deal for reciprocal rights for citizens.

On Sunday, the former Tory chair Chris Patten warned that the Brexit deadlock represented one of the bleakest moments in British postwar history.
