Speaking in Strasbourg this morning, ahead of a vote to formally adopt a set of negotiating guidelines for the next phase of Brexit, Juncker told MEPs that any future relationship must be durable and not require continual renegotiation.

"I fully respect the Chancellor's competence in defining what is in the UK's interest but he must allow us to define what is in the EU's interest", he said.

That frustration was reinforced by EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who also told EU legislators that "there is increasing urgency to negotiate this orderly withdrawal".

'We are monitoring the situation as the negotiations unfold and look forward to receiving additional clarity at the March council, ' said Honda's European government affairs manager Patrick Keating.

The European Parliament is expected to approve a resolution on Wednesday calling for no reduction in "social and democratic rights" in NI after Brexit.

He added: "For the moment, it is not unlikely that the negotiations will end up with a bad result, a bad result for the European Union but worse for the UK".

'If you decide to jettison, leave behind, the common agreements and rules, then you have to accept that things can not remain as they are'.

He said: 'There was this Mansion House speech by Mrs May, but it was mainly repeating the red lines that we know already'.

His European Parliament motion calls for an "association agreement" to deal with the future UK-EU relationship.

Britain is very close to agreeing the details of an implementation period with the European Union for its transition out of the bloc, junior Brexit minister Robin Walker said on Monday.

Whilst May's speech reflects her determination to agree to a trade deal with the European Union before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, it comes late in the process, at a time when the European Union has been clear about its plans to make a declaration-a high-level political statement-which is to be annexed to the Withdrawal Agreement and use the circa two-year transition period to negotiate the future trade agreement.

The EU is seeking to be exempted from planned USA import duties of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum, but says Washington has not made clear how the exemption process works.

Chuka Umunna, a prominent lawmaker in the opposition Labour Party who is advocating Britain remaining part of the tariff-free single market and customs union, said Fox's remarks were nothing more than "playground speak".
