Brussels chief Brexit negotiator slams UK PM for backlashing on European Union rules

That dismissal was backed up by European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen who said the bloc was "fine" with Britain walking away without a deal if it so chose, although she preferred to see an "ambitious" accord struck.

European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen pointed out that even Australia wants a better trading relationship with the bloc than the one it now has.

"We are ready to discuss all different models of trade agreement". Speaking after Mr Barnier on Tuesday, Mr Javid said the two sides were working closely to reach an agreement.

More broadly, the European Union is prepared to offer Britain unrivaled access to its single market in a trade deal with zero tariffs and quotas, but has insisted that any such rights would have to come with obligations to ensure fair competition.

"Australia, without any doubt, is a strong and a like-minded partner".

In addition, for economies that already have a free trade agreement with the European Union, the United Kingdom needs to renew the negotiations; for those that have not yet inked a free trade deal with the European Union, the country can also get the negotiations in gear after Brexit. "But, in fact, we just are in the moment where we are agreeing with Australia that we must end this situation and we work in a trade deal with them".

The UK government is due to publish a white paper on new immigration policy in March to put into practice the new immigration policy immediately after ending the Brexit transition period, which is poised to settle on bringing in high-skilled immigrants regardless of their nationality, but the overall number of immigrants will decline in years to come.

The UK Treasury had included the demand for so-called permanent equivalence in a draft of its opening positions for next month's trade negotiations with the European Union - some of which were revealed in a document that was photographed as Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid carried it in Downing Street on Monday.

Both sides have said they want to avoid such costs and barriers to trade.

Instead, the EU will offer "equivalence", which means European regulators will dictate the standards that UK-based finance firms must uphold. "But there will be differences, not least because as a global financial centre the United Kingdom needs to keep pace with and drive worldwide standards". "We will keep control of these tools, and we will retain the free hand to take our own decisions".

"Financial services might one month be in scope and next month be out of scope".

"We saw last time Macron positioning France to take a fair amount of business and play hardball, and I think that is going to happen now", the Labour frontbencher told journalists in Westminster.

It comes after senior British minister Michael Gove said on Monday that goods coming to Britain from the European Union will face import controls from January 1.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) said the Government would have to move fast to get infrastructure in place for the start of 2021, warning that without adequate preparations the availability of goods on shelves would be disrupted, with fresh fruit and vegetables especially vulnerable.
