Barnier Tells EU Governments `Not Much Progress' in Brexit Talks


But Mrs May's spokesman said the "focus is on getting this right" rather than meeting a deadline. She said leaders need to make progress at that meeting and October is the "last possible" date to agree on the terms for an orderly Brexit.

"We are concerned about the lack of a clear approach, a clear position from the British".

About it reports Reuters with a reference to the statement by the German Minister for European Affairs Michael Roth announced in Brussels on Monday, may 14.

"We need now to be making substantial progress, but that is not happening".

"I just can't see how it works if there are no checks on the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and no checks on goods travelling from Northern Ireland to Great Britain, which itself raises a number of political questions that are hard to resolve".

Gibraltar's post-Brexit future, in particular its inclusion in any transition arrangements, is also on the list of issues that require resolution.

Last December, the United Kingdom and European Union agreed the need for a "backstop" option that would ensure no return of a hard border - through an alignment of regulations across the island - even if a wider Brexit trade deal failed to materialise.

Theresa May's Brexit war cabinet will meet again as discussions over how to resolve the deadlock on the customs union continue.

Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok said it was too early to discuss an extension of the timeline, but added: "The aim is now to conclude a deal in the time schedule that has been agreed on ..."

"I trust that he finished the job off earlier this morning, but unfortunately this just does leave us with his own insane Mad Max proposal - max fac proposal".

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
