UK gets ready for no deal with EU

Britain: Door is still open for Brexit deal, need better terms

A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson echoed the sentiment, noting: "The UK continues to believe there is no basis to resume talks unless there is a fundamental change of approach from the European Union".

European Council President Charles Michel is seen at a special EU Council summit in Brussels. "Such talks would be meaningless and would take us no nearer to finding a workable solution".

Due to this, firms will need to ensure they adhere to new customs procedures, visa, work permits, and immigration rules. Another said ministers would be ready to agree to add extra guarantees to dilute the most contentious powers in the bill, which may not be needed if a new European Union deal can be struck.

"But I still hope we will get a deal through."

Michael Gove told the bloc's chief negotiator Michael Barnier that "the ball is in his court" as to whether negotiations resume in the coming days.

Mr Andrews blew up the federal government over the weekend after up to 55 travelers from New Zealand entered Victoria via Sydney. However, he conceded the state was now a part of the travel bubble.

The negotiations to reach a deal between the sides have faces several hurdles, including Johnson's Brexit legislation.

"We're certainly not saying that if they do change their position that we can't talk to them, but I think it's only fair also that we communicate one other thing, which is that we are ready, if required, to leave on what have been called 'Australian terms, ' and that's not going to be a picnic".

"But they must be ready to discuss the detailed legal text of a treaty in all areas".

He added: "It's a question of semantics at the end of the day, sure". In the meantime, Gove is telling companies that "time is running out" to prepare for no deal.

Elsewhere, face-to-face talks took place in London on Monday morning between Mr Gove and his opposite number on the UK-EU joint committee, Maros Sefcovic, to discuss issues around the Brexit divorce deal. This concluded with both sides agreeing to hold "contacts at all levels" to "significantly intensify" the implementation of the Withdrawal Agreement agreed between the two sides previous year. The government still argues Brussels is expecting the U.K.to break all its red lines on the two main stumbling blocks, namely fisheries and the so-called level playing field, which Brussels wants to guarantee United Kingdom businesses don't undercut the bloc.

Stimulus talks are stuck as time runs short, Pelosi says
After giving a deadline to the Trump administration to reach an agreement for a Covid-19 stimulus plan, Rep. It's likely most Senate and House Republicans will oppose the Mnuchin-Pelosi agreement, if one is reached.

Frustration over a lack of progress has been growing, with the Prime Minister warning the European Union on Friday that unless it is prepared to fundamentally change its approach towards post-Brexit trade negotiations with the UK, London might opt for a no-deal scenario.

Businesses, increasingly concerned about the high tariffs of a no-deal exit, called on both sides to find a compromise for a deal. Confederation of British Industry deputy chief Josh Hardie said a "hat-trick of unprecedented challenges" loomed thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and "uncertainty over the UK's trading relationship with the EU".

In a letter published in the Financial Times, the top archbishops in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said the government's Brexit-related Internal Market Bill had "enormous moral, as well as political and legal, consequences".

So far, the prime minister has refused, but his officials believe Parliament will force his hand when members of the House of Lords - the U.K.'s unelected upper chamber - remove the clauses that would breach global law.
