Taoiseach Varadkar rules out controversial 'fast-track register' for Irish border crossing

Taoiseach Varadkar rules out controversial 'fast-track register' for Irish border crossing

Theresa May has committed to withdrawing from the customs union and single market, which would mean there would need to be border checks between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland - this being the only land border the United Kingdom shares with the EU - whilst also insisting that one of her primary goals is to avoid a hard border within Ireland.

The survey by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is for businesses that offer their financial services under European Union "passporting" rules to customers in Britain from a base in another member state.

"It is time to face up to the hard facts", he added.

The EU has warned they expect EU nationals moving to Britain after leaving the EU in Match 2019 to have the same rights as EU nationals already in the country during any transition period.

It therefore appears impossible to solve the problem of the Irish border given the self-imposed red lines of both the European Union and of Theresa May. "We will set out further details on these proposals and how the scheme will operate in due course".

This could last from March 29, 2019 until December 31, 2020 under European Union proposals.

"As the clock ticks down with one year to go, it is now time to translate speeches into treaties, to turn commitments into agreements, broad suggestions and wishes on the future relationship into specific workable conditions", he said in what can be seen as a rebuke to the speech of British Prime Minister Theresa May earlier in the month.

The EU has consistently said since the June 2016 referendum that it's not looking to punish Britain for its vote and is working to get a deal on the future relationship that works for both sides but which is consistent with its rules.

"Brexit negotiations have reached a critical stage, yet essential issues over citizens' rights remain unresolved and solutions maintaining an invisible border on the island of Ireland are not forthcoming".

The somewhat escalated wrangling between the EU and Britain came after the bloc published its draft negotiating guidelines last week, which firmly refused what has been called "British cherry-picking" of privileges and responsibilities of membership in the Union.

European Council president Donald Tusk has threatened to freeze Brexit talks, insisting that the sequence of negotiations must be "Ireland first".

He continued to say "we could do a deal with America in 48 hours", which was met with laughter. In the free trade agreement we can offer trade in goods, with the aim of covering all sectors, subject to zero tariffs and no quantitative restrictions.
