It’s official, we’re getting a proper Brexit – David Davis and Michel Barnier confirmed we’re leaving the Single Market and customs union.
Barnier, shortly after the first day of negotiations had finished, said: “The United Kingdom is going to leave the European Union, single market and the customs union, not the other way around.
“So, we each have to assume our responsibility and the consequences of our decisions. And the consequences are substantial.
“A fair deal is possible and far better than no deal.”
