Germany: no punishment for UK, but EU exit good for no one

Once agreement has been made in this phase of the talks, the second phase discussing the future trade relationship can begin.

Davis said both sides were "off to a promising start" even though the challenges ahead were daunting.

Almost a year to the day since the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, the process of Brexit finally begins on Monday.

"If the Government does not provide a user-friendly, flexible and affordable immigration system for European Union nationals post Brexit... significant numbers of employers will be forced to relocate or focus future growth outside the United Kingdom", said Gerwyn Davies, CIPD labor market adviser. Talks are expected to proceed slowly, with a fight on every point of the deal, but with the increased pressure coming from business and government leaders, in addition to the growing rate of terror attacks in Britain, the pressure is on Theresa May and her government.

"We have to clear the accounts and we have to honour our mutual financial commitments". Finally, another crunch issue for the talks this summer is the border in Ireland between north and south, which will particularly exercise the government as it continues to work with the DUP.

Sir Keir said the loss of Mrs May's overall majority in the June 8 General Election meant Parliament could no longer be "marginalised" in the Brexit process and "appropriate steps" must be taken to prepare for a Labour administration to take over negotiations at any stage if Mrs May's Government falls.

For many Brexit advocates, those conditions would be impossible to accept as last year's referendum campaign focused on getting back control over laws and immigration from the EU.

The association represents 3,200 businesses with a million employees in Germany making industrial machinery.

Britain appears to have given in on the EU's insistence that talks first focus on three key divorce issues, before moving onto the future EU-UK relationship and a possible trade deal.

He also said his team is starting the process with a "positive and constructive tone", and that "there is more that unites us than divides us". "We must first tackle the uncertainties caused by Brexit", centering on citizens living on each other's territory, border arrangements between Ireland and the United Kingdom and the amount that Britain stands to pay to get out of its previous European Union commitments, Barnier said.

"Our big problem is that we have no picture, no idea at all, what the British want", said German Manfred Weber, the head of the EPP Christian Democrat group in the European Parliament.

He added: "The United Kingdom has chose to leave the European Union, it is not the other way around". Officials on both sides have until March 2019 to work out a deal, after which Britain will official exit the EU.

A new poll shows that 69% of respondents disagree with the Prime Minister's "Hard Brexit" policy of leaving the European Union customs union.

The EU's Chief Negotiator, Michel Barnier, spent the weekend mountain hiking near his home in the French Alps.

More pressing is the issues of providing effective guarantees to some 5 million people _ around 3 million European Union citizens living in Britain plus nearly 2 million Britons in Europe _ who want to know what the future holds after Brexit.
