The EU has objected to plans from London, in the case of Unger Brexits apply largely to dispense with import duties. Rather, we will treat the UK like any other third state.
What happens should apply to vote in the British Parliament in the evening, that is actually a hard Brexit - the exit of Britain from the EU? The London government's plans are clear: No customs duties on most imports, not a hard limit on the Irish Islands. For the UK, such a scheme would be not bad, at least the feared price increases could be intercepted.
In Brussels, however, sees it quite differently. You will not miss for sure on import duties on the Irish border, should it come to apply a non-Brexit, said a spokesman for the EU Commission as a replica of Britain's Prime Minister Thereas May, who had presented their plans today in London. Although the EU had no interest in a hard limit on the island of Ireland. But: "The EU will ensure the integrity of the single market and the customs Union, under all scenarios." For this, it is then necessary to treat the UK just like other third countries. "This is important for the EU to remain a reliable trade partner for the rest of the world."Merkel urges patience
First of all, the EU needs to wait for the decision of the British house of Commons. The stressed also German Chancellor Angela Merkel: "it is Now up to the British page, so the British Parliament today to determine whether you want a agreement or if you wish to exit without the agreement." On Thursday will then decide about a possible postponement of the discharge date. "It is only in the light of these two results, we can see on a profound Basis on page 27, as we proceed in the next few days," said Merkel.
