Barnier insists that London’s position has not evolved in months after his informal encounter with Frost

The EU’s chief negotiator for future relations with the UK, Michel Barnier, assured this Wednesday that London’s position had not evolved over the past few months, blaming the UK’s lack of intransigence for the lack of progress.

Speaking at an event at the Institute for International and European Affairs in Ireland, the French diplomat reiterated his “concern” about the UK’s lack of commitment to competition and fisheries.

After the informal meeting he held Tuesday with British negotiator David Frost, with whom he prepared the eighth round of negotiations, Barnier stated that London’s position on fisheries had not evolved in months, even though he did now As a legislative text, this includes expelling Irish fishermen from British fishing grounds who have been fishing for decades.
