"Real political difficulties" lie ahead for Brexit, EU summit chair Donald Tusk said after Prime Minister Theresa May gave him a preview of the vision of future trade ties she will unveil on Friday (March 2).

"We are close to agreement on the terms of the implementation period which was a key element in the December deal".

Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, said the assembly will "closely scrutinise" the draft proposals, which also cover citizens' rights for the three million EU nationals in the United Kingdom and 1.4 million Britons in the EU.

Mr McKeever believes that if the UK Government can not secure a customs union agreement with the EU a hard border is "unavoidable".

Calling for a second referendum to consider the final deal on offer from Brussels, Blair rejected suggestions that his was a Don Quixote exercise, and said he believed British debate was opening up as voters grappled with what he called a dilemma between losing trade or losing control of economic rules.

Mrs May's speech was relocated from Newcastle in the north east of England to Mansion House because of the adverse weather conditions.

The controversial plan, immediately condemned by UK Prime Minister Theresa May, was outlined on Wednesday by European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier who, at the same time, called on the UK to come up with alternatives.

According to the legal proposal, Northern Ireland will form a " common regulatory area " with the Republic of Ireland and will have to follow the EU's rules and rates on customs, sales tax, state aid, excise duties and even sanitary and phytosanitary rules.

James Kuffner, poached by the Toyota Research Institute from Google in 2016 , will function as its CEO. In February, the company led a $11.5 million investment round for a company called May Mobility.

May said Brexit would not put at risk the progress made on securing peace in Northern Ireland and she said Britain and the European Union had a joint responsibility to find a solution over how to avoid a hard border between the British province and Ireland.

In effect - and if no other solution is found - this would keep Northern Ireland in a customs union. "So, lets get on with it", she concluded.

Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson posed with thumbs up and a copy of the speech, having been stranded in Hungary due to the snow. "If she says nothing more than that, too bad", the official said on condition of anonymity. "Plus ca change", he wrote on Twitter.

"Anyway, after your decision on no customs union and no single market it's some kind of breakthrough and we can start our substantive negotiations immediately". Canada style FTA. Fudge on IRE.

"A transition period will only be possible if we can agree a withdrawal treaty".

Mrs May acknowledged that leaving the single market would mean "life is going to be different".

Speaking about the fact that Brexit was a result of the nation-wide referendum, where the British electorate expressed its preference for leaving the EU, Major said that it is up to the politicians to ensure the "well-being of the people".

Mrs May will recall words she delivered on the steps of Number 10 when she became Prime Minister in July 2016, when she pledged to "forge a bold new positive role for ourselves in the world and... make Britain a country that works not for a privileged few, but for every one of us". "Now we have to be happy and contented neighbours".
