UK Brexit minister and finance minister look to ease German nerves
David Davis and Philip Hammond write in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
- Want to give German business leaders that transition period takes priority before final exit from single market and customs union
- Say they understand German position that Britain cannot cherrypick but EU priorities on deep and special partnership are not incompatible with UK's
- Write about need to be imaginative in defining new relationship between Britain and EU
Sounds a little desperate.
