Theresa May Proposes Blurring Her Brexit Red Line on ECJ

Theresa May the Prime Minister

"I am glad that the United Kingdom seems to be moving towards more detailed position, however if media reports are correct then I am afraid the United Kingdom position is based on pure illusion." he said.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker addresses a press conference after a summit of the 27 EU leaders excluding British prime minister in Brussels, Belgium, on February 23, 2018.

Twenty months after Britons voted to leave the bloc in a referendum, May's government has yet to put flesh on the bones of her vision for future ties - plans which were dealt a blow earlier on Thursday when European Union sources ruled out her proposal for "managed divergence" from the bloc's rules as "cherry picking". "I am not the British prime minister, it would be good for Britain if I was it, but I am not", Juncker told a reporter who quizzed him on when he expected to get details of the outcome. Juncker made the comment at an European Union summit when asked about a highlevel British cabinet meeting chaired by premier Theresa May aimed at thrashing out a plan for a future partnership with the EU.

The challenge will come after today's meeting when Ministers, and their aides, start providing the running commentary that Mrs May cautioned against when she succeeded David Cameron.

Britain has said it wants an implementation period to last around two years, while the European Union has stipulated an end date of December 31, 2020.

It is because I realize that I am enjoying the process, these four minutes are historical and they only belong to me. Medvedeva, a two-time world champion, won silver, while Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond took the bronze medal.

"This is the most important decision any cabinet has made for many years".

"You've got to remember we are leaving the European Union on March 29 (2019), we will be out of the treaties on that day, we will not have any say in the rules that are made and therefore people who come after that day ought not to be allowed to have the full and permanent free movement rights".

May's cabinet of top ministers is not alone in being deeply divided over life after Brexit.

Juncker also called for increasing the size of the European Union budget.

Several groups, and even a new party, are being formed to represent all sides of the debate, ranging from pressing for a Brexit reversal or a second referendum, to those accepting Brexit but differing over whether Britain should be in or out of the bloc's existing trading arrangements.

Writing in the newspaper, leading Leave campaigner Jacob Rees-Mogg said that the document would bring about "Brexit in name only" and be a "perversion of democracy".

May's spokesman said it had always been government policy that Britain would be able to agree and sign such deals during the time-limited period.

May's spokesman was unruffled.

One person briefed on the talks said that Britain would make a formal declaration committed to high standards in areas such as employment law, the environment and consumer protection, to preserve a level playing field.

Asked to say whether they think BBC News is pro-Brexit, anti-Brexit, neither or don't know, the majority of Remain voters polled said "neither" or "don't know".
