Kamall on PM May speech: It is time to move forward on Brexit

Today the Prime Minister has taken a decisive steps towards shaping a final deal for the UK leaving the EU by clarifying the UK’s position.
 
‘We can only hope that the EU takes what the Prime Minister has said seriously, and sees that it is time to move forward. I hope that the clarity provided today will allow for real progress at the next round of negotiations.
 
Clarifying the rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in EU countries, the future UK-EU trading relationship and settling outstanding financial commitments are the biggest issues on the table, and the Prime Minister has been clear what she wants from these negotiations, and how far she is willing to go. 
 
‘EU Leaders need to realise that the British people voted to leave the EU in order for things to be different. Our future relationship should be less about open cheques and more about open trade.”
 
We need to start talking about our future trading relationship. The UK and EU’s future trade relationship is just as important for EU jobs and business, as it is for those UK companies that trade with EU companies and customers. 
 
‘Of course there are two sides negotiating to get the best possible deal for those they represent; but I hope that at the end we can all come together and shake hands believing everyone played fair, so that we can all move towards with a close and productive future relationship built on trade and cooperation where we continue to have mutual interests.’
