And another groundhog set of discussions but with a third negotiator.

Brexit is not about EU. It is about how to get deals with countries out of EU, instead of lying under the protection framwork of EU.

What has gone so wrong in the UK? the people voted to leave the EU....yes , the referendum was a mess: on both sides. But the result was Yes and so be it. But how has the UK managed to screw up so badly on the process of leaving...it really is Mad Hatters Tea Party stuff. Parts of the UK media are a disgrace to freedom of the press with their lies and jibes. But that is nothing new. One thing is clear.....preparation by the UK for withdrawal, deal or no deal, has sadly lacking. Was is that the mess in the House of Commons.....Torys divided, Labour up in the air, made preparation impossible. One hopes SOME common sense will be brought to bear and that the UK will finally adopt a practical approach to the backstop....dedramatise as the EU has already suggested. its really interesting and thought provoking that the most common feeling among the people in other Member States about the UK is one of total bewilderment....I would echo that....what is it that the Uk is trying to achieve by its handling, or rather mis handling of the exit process?????
Three brexit secretaries in 9 months; I just hope M. Barnier isn´t confused too easily. But what are these people doing in Bruxelles? (repeating themselves)
They all have better things to do. It´s either this deal or no deal. Prepare for no deal like Rees- Mog and farage did already.
Brexit should be completed without delay anymore to protect the EU from Muslims from Africa and Middle East.

Michel Barnier Is Negotiating Brexit Michel Barnier met with May’s 1 day ago   08:08

The EU AND UK will soon launch the latest round of Brexit talks next week, and one man will be speaking for the 27 remaining countries: Michel Barnier.

The future rights of 500 million citizens and and the world’s most powerful trading bloc are riding on the deal his team brokers with the UK.

Barnier has a reputation as a hardliner, which stems primarily from the strong banking reforms he introduced as the EU internal market commission between 2010 and 2014. And his opponents have seized on that reputation to paint him as a villain in current Brexit talks.

With Brexit’s deadline looming, VICE News sat down with Barnier to discuss the the status of the world’s largest divorce proceedings.

“Right now, I have no certainty,” Barnier tells VICE News. "I can see the difficulty and the intensity of this debate. We’re waiting for the British to have a clear position and choices."
