Briefing Friday 21st September 2018

UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, has insisted on sticking to her Brexit plan despite the fact that the EU strongly thinks it “will not work”. At the end of the EU summit in Salzburg on Friday, Donald Tusk said that My’s plan had some “positive elements” however, he openly showed his disagreement to her proposals on the future of trade between the UK and EU. The conclusion of the summit was that May has four weeks to convince the EU to accept her plan or to create a new plan as an alternative.

MPs have called for Chris Grayling to bear personal responsibility for Britain’s rail chaos after an inquiry into the meltdown of summer rail timetables reported its findings. The head of a cross-party committee said that the transport secretary was primarily to blame for the mayhem that led to the cancellation of almost 800 trains a day.
