Ford calls for Brexit clarity to help it make UK investment decision- Report

The European Commission is expecting to hear from the United States in the coming days how the European Union can avoid USA import tariffs on steel and aluminum, Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Tuesday.

The future strength or weakness of Sterling is very much linked to the future outcome from Brexit, overall expectations on the final deal from Brexit are taking time to finalise but thankfully we do seem to be getting ever closer to understanding at least the ultimate direction.

Best For Britain says that effectively amounts to a transfer of powers to Brussels which - under the 2011 European Union Act - would trigger a referendum.

However, despite Brexit not actually happening until next year, manufacturers will have to make a decision sooner regarding their future in the UK.

"If you decide to jettison, leave behind, the common agreements and rules, then you have to accept that things can not remain as they are".

Britain, which played no formal role in drawing up the draft, objected to some of its contents, particularly a section on avoiding a hard Irish border which set out in detail proposals to keep Northern Ireland in a the EU's customs union.

Mr Juncker's words were echoed by Monika Panayotova, the Bulgarian minister responsible for the country's chairing of the European Council.


Referring to the dispute with the United States over steel and aluminium tariffs, he said the UK could sign its own trade deal with the U.S. "in 48 hours" if it was not a member of the EU.

"What we can agree, I think our position as Parliament is a reasonable one and gives an indication that we want to have, finally, an agreement that avoids the most hard damage that can be created".

We do not accept the United Kingdom's negotiating position that maintains discriminations between European Union citizens arriving before and after the start of the transition period.

"So please Mrs May at this summit next week, do what Trump has done, stand strong against the European Commission, against the unelected bullies", he said.

He said Mrs May would settle for "conditional surrender", but added that "UKIP's position is no surrender" and his party would not accept "subservience" to the European Union in the future relationship.

The motion insists on a "binding interpretation role" for the European Court of Justice (CJEU) and rejects United Kingdom efforts to "cherry-pick" single market access for particular sectors, such as the financial services industry. "We can only achieve this if all sides work together". "I've heard none of this today", he added.
