EU presses Britain to get its act together for Brexit talks

Brexit talks can start 'when UK is ready', says EU chief negotiator

Brexit talks can start 'when UK is ready', says EU chief negotiator

"But now it will be necessary to wait for who will form a government and what this government will bring to negotiations over Brexit". "We know when they must end", said Mr Tusk.

Moody's said that the UK's rating would depend upon the outcome of Brexit and fiscal developments given the country's budget deficit and rising public debt.

While many have suggested that European leaders in Brussels will be rubbing their hands in glee at the result of the United Kingdom election, the truth is that lawmakers are eager to get the negotiations underway as soon as possible, and worry that any uncertainty in London will delay and complicate the process even further.

Tusk said the March 2019 deadline "leaves us with no time to lose".

German Chancellor Angela "Merkel will notice that, (French President Emmanuel) Macron will notice that". To make matters worse, she saw her majority evaporate.

Paula Surridge, senior lecturer at Bristol University, said it may take time to get to the negotiations in the first place.

He said that the "timetable and European Union positions are clear".

Norway's foreign minister, whose country twice voted against joining the European Union but has access to the bloc's single market, said Brexit talks would be "harder than we hoped" after Britain's result. Although the Labour Party's vision for exiting the EU can be considered softer since it remains ambiguous on access to the Single Market and Customs Union, the party's leader Jeremy Corbyn also advocates for a deep break with the EU by stopping freedom of movement - one of the fundamental freedoms that EU citizenship guarantees, and a red line for Brussels.

The Lib Dems, which had campaigned for a second referendum on the terms of Brexit that could mean Britain staying in the bloc, was forecast to gain several seats in areas that voted for "Remain". British Prime Minister Theresa May's gamble in calling an early election appeared Friday to have backfired spectacularly, after an exit poll suggested her Conservative Party could lose its majority in Parliament.

At the time she was riding high in the polls and she pushed a tough message on Brexit on the campaign trail, saying she was planning to be a "bloody hard woman" in Brussels.

"Looks like it was the Brexit election after all".

Blockmans: I think there is a wide acknowledgement in fact that the hard line that Theresa May has followed has usurped some of the political support that has gone away from UKIP, so there was a tendency to create that hard Tory line towards Brexit talks as the line that UKIP used to support.

"Article 50 has been triggered and we were on our way".

Furthermore, he said there would be a greater demand for a "softer" Brexit.

"The timetable, whatever happens here, is likely to be pushed back", the former UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader said.

"I think that Brexit actually is going to have to be negotiated in a very different way", she told ITV.

Voters dealt Prime Minister Theresa May a devastating blow in a ballot she had called to strengthen her hand in Brexit talks, wiping out her parliamentary majority and throwing the country into political turmoil. "A vote for one to go and the other to be revisited".

"After Cameron now May, will make already complex negotiations even more complicated" he wrote.

Preliminary results indicate she will instead face a far tougher balancing act between europhiles and eurosceptics within her own party.

Prime Minister Theresa May chose to hold a snap election to boost her majority and strengthen her hand in European Union divorce talks.
