Cabinet committee discusses post-Brexit trade

Barnier also said that Britain must accept the EU's "complete architecture" - including all directives and rules introduced when Britain no longer has a say in the European Union decision-making process - as part of any transition deal.

The Government hopes the terms of a transitional deal will be agreed by March next year, with talks to begin in January.

The government is expected to push for a "Canada plus plus plus" deal, which would cover the vital services sector as well as goods trade.

The passport is a set of rules and regulations which allow UK-based finance firms to trade with and sell their services into Europe. There can be no sector-by-sector participation in the single market.

Theresa May insisted the United Kingdom can cherry-pick its trade deal with the EU. "We won't technically or legally be in the customs union or in the single market, but we're committed, as a result of the agreement we made this week, to creating an environment which will effectively replicate the current status quo", he said.

Those familiar with May's cabinet session said the focus was not on transition but the ambitions for a trading arrangement in the Brexit "end state". However, the referral could only be made with the United Kingdom and EU's agreement.

'For us, I don't think we will ever label Brexit a success.

On Monday a senior adviser to Barnier said the European Union could never see Brexit as a success, arguing that it would ultimately weaken both sides economically. "No way. They have to face the consequences of their own decision". The BBC reports on a divide between advocates of normative alignment to the European Union - a model that resembles Norway - and hard Brexiteers that want a bespoke Canada plus services deal.

Mrs May gathered her Brexit "war Cabinet" today for its first discussions on what model Britain will seek in the next phase of talks.

A source revealed that the prime minister argued strongly for the United Kingdom to maintain its calls for a "bespoke and ambitious" trade deal despite a suggestion from the EU's lead negotiator, Michel Barnier, that such an option was not viable.

Mr Johnson said that Britain must "maximise the benefits of Brexit" and this means the nation must go its own way.

He appeared to dismiss reports that ministers would use Monday's meeting to demand an end to the EU Working Time Directive, which limits the working week to 48 hours.

He said: 'The prime minister has done a fantastic job moving us forward in the negotiations.

"We're attempting to ensure a comprehensive, tariff-free free trade agreement, and we understand it is impractical to not give some thought to judicial mechanisms to police that", the source said.

He added: 'We need to raise our eyes to the horizon and ask ourselves in 10, 20, 30 years time.

A similar system is used by South America's Mercosur trade bloc. It may need to deregulate to attract worldwide business - a very different future and a lot of disruption.
