„Brexit“-Minister verteidigt Pläne gegen Kritik aus Brüssel

Vor Mitgliedern eines Parlamentsausschusses in London bezeichnete Raab gestern den Chequers-Plan der konservativen Premierministerin Theresa May als den „bei Weitem plausibelsten und glaubhaftesten“.
Sowohl in Großbritannien selbst als auch bei der EU-Kommission gibt es starke Vorbehalte gegen Mays Pläne. Heute kommt Raab erneut mit EU-Chefunterhändler Michel Barnier in Brüssel zusammen.

MERK TO THE RESCUE: Theresa May offered Brexit lifeline by Angela Merkel who insists EU leaders give PM ‘one last chance’ to sell Chequers plan to them

The Times is reporting that the German Chancellor Ms Merkel is frustrated the talks are not leading to a breakthrough, and is taking matters into her own hands.

She is said to have suggested they use the summit scheduled in Austria for the PM to hold direct talks to avert a no-deal Brexit.

Our snap survey. Three in five Party members believe May’s new Brexit plan represents a bad deal for Britain.

After all, one might think it would be a bad deal for Britain, if implemented, but still back it, perhaps out of Party loyalty. (We’re not expressing a view on such a stance; merely pointing out that it’s possible.)

But at any rate, there’s next to no difference between the two findings. Three in five panel members think the plan would represent a bad deal for Britain if implemented, and the same proportion don’t support it.
