Michel Barnier 'strongly opposed' to May's Brexit plan


The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has said he is "strongly" opposed to key parts of Theresa May's proposals for a future trade deal.

This morning the prime minister said she would not compromise on the UK government's Chequers plan.

But Barnier said plans for a "common rulebook" for goods but not services were not in the EU's interests.

In response, the UK government insisted its plans were "precise and pragmatic" and would work for the UK and the EU.
