Barnier: Brussels will not be intimidated by a Brexit blame game – Daily Mail

Michel Barnier today rejected Theresa May’s Brexit backstop plans just a day after she finally got her warring Cabinet to signed up to them. In a fresh blow to the Prime Minister, the EU’s chief negotiator said the blueprint was not ‘feasible’ and urged Britain to be more ‘realistic’ about the talks. Under the plan, the UK would stay aligned to EU customs union if plans to ensure the Irish border remains soft are not ready by the end of the transition period. And in a major concession to her Brexit Secretary David Davis, she agreed to enshrine an expectation that this backstop would come to an end by the end of December 2021.
