English villages wake up to find they're Brexit's new border

  English villages wake up to find they're Brexit's new border SEVINGTON, England (AP) — Four years after Britain voted to leave the European Union, Brexit can still seem abstract. But in the county known as the Garden of England, it is literally taking concrete form. Just beyond the ancient oaks and yews that surround medieval St. Mary's Church in the village of Sevington, bulldozers, dump trucks and cement mixers swarm noisily over a field. They are chewing up land to create part of Britain’s new border with the European Union — a customs clearance depot with room for up to 2,000 trucks.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Britain has sovereign choices to make on Brexit and they will determine its future access to the EU's internal market, the chairman of the bloc's leaders said on Wednesday, stressing it was now up to London to break an impasse in trade negotiations.

A frustrated European Union and piqued Britain both exhorted each other on Tuesday to compromise to avoid a fast-approaching disruptive finale to the five-year Brexit drama that would add to economic pain from the coronavirus crisis.

'Good progress' is not good enough: EU to push Brexit Britain on trade

  'Good progress' is not good enough: EU to push Brexit Britain on trade 'Good progress' is not good enough: EU to push Brexit Britain on tradeBRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union leaders meeting in Brussels on Thursday will pressure Britain for concessions in their troubled Brexit talks, saying a trillion euros worth of trade could be sunk if London does not budge on fisheries, fair competition and solving disputes.

The EU has said it is willing to "intensify" talks on a trade deal with the UK this week to try to break the impasse between the two sides. Its negotiator Michel Barnier said the bloc was prepared to discuss all areas of disagreement, including fishing and competition, based on legal texts. Michael Gove said he

Even so, those planning the EU ’ s strategy, including the teams working for European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and chief negotiator Michel Barnier, are trying to work out how to make it look like they are backing down to give Johnson his victory.

"Time is very short and we stand ready to negotiate 24/7, on all subjects, on legal texts. The UK has a bit of a decision to make and it's their free and sovereign choice," European Council President Charles Michel told the European Parliament.

"Their sovereign answer will determine the level of access to our internal market, this is just common sense."

Michel said the 27 EU members were equally ready for an abrupt split in trading ties at the end of the year without a new partnership agreement to avoid tariffs or quotas from 2021.

"Brexit means Brexit, as (former British prime minister) Theresa May used to say. But Brexit also means making choices about our future relationship," said Michel, ennumerating the three sticking points in the trade negotiations: fishing rights, the settlement of disputes and economic fair play.

"We don't need words, we need guarantees," he said of the so-called level playing field guarantees for fair competition.

"Do our British friends want to regulate state aid and uphold high medical standards? If so, why not commit to them."
