It is being reported this morning that the EU are climbing down and appear to be caving into the demands of the UK.

It would seem to give the UK full access to the European Single Market and have the ability to create their own trade deals and control immigration. If this goes ahead it will cause a major headache for the EU as other countries will ask themselves, why are we not getting this deal?

I would be amazed if this is true, there is no need for the EU to back down when they have the UK on the ropes. Backing down would also open the floodgates to the rest of the EU to demand similar deals, especially in regards to Immigration.

It is very much in the interests of both the EU and the UK to come to some sort of a deal. Going to WTO after exit day would be disruptive for both. However, the article is a little light on detail, 'sources in the EU' and 'it is expected to be discussed at the September EU summit', seems very speculative. I would suggest that the article starting with arrogant EU is juvenille click bait, also the EU will not be offering any cherry picking of the 4 f's to anyone, period, for to do so would end the rationale for having an EU. Just some thoughts.

If anything I have learnt from the Brexit process is that this is just another blip in the road.

As I said on another thread, anyone who thinks Germany will decimate their economy for Brussels is mad. Germany will find a way to keep Britain as a preferred trading partner, and Germany is the EU.

The UK is Germany's third biggest total export market for all goods, after the USA and France. Germany has a bigger trade surplus with the UK than it has with any other country in the world, and that surplus grows by 5% per year.

Germany will do all it can to prevent the UK leaving, but if it does, Germany simply cannot, and will not, allow anything other than a deal with the UK that doesn't affect trade in any way.

Assuming this is true, not exaggerated and not press silly season as Norman Bates suggests in posts 5 and 6 above, it is possible that this measure which allows the Channel Island - not part of the UK or EU, may now be extended to cover just Northern Ireland, rather than the whole UK.

The Express is deeply conflicted; just a few days ago they were reporting a UK cave-in. They want rid of May, but they want Brexit. Above all else, they fear Jezza.

Note also that the MEP claiming tha tthe EU 'blinked' is the same person who wanted Gary Lineker tried for treason. He's a Brexit Ultra and can hardly be taken at face value on this issue.

So what you're saying is that, while the EU may have gateaux, they have absolutely no cake?
