EU's Brexit negotiator on Reuters

  • EU cannot accept a hard border between North and Southern Ireland (that's one he'll definitely want to keep his nose out of)

  • Future close partnership with Britain should be an association agreement

  • Transition period of EU/UK relations after Brexit should be 3 years

The head of the EU parliament is also up;

  • Britain can still change its mind on Brexit but all other EU States would have to agree

This is the hot air I warned about in my prior post. These bods can waffle on to their hearts content but the real work will come when the UK and EU face each other across a table.
