  • But, although he agreed with the brakes at Secretary David Davis, that the Prime Minister's intervention had created a good dynamic, he made it clear, there remained significant differences Brussels.

  • Here's a Europe correspondent Kevin Connelly.

  • For once, the news conference, the close the latest round of breaks it talks did not include a warning from Michelle Barney another ticking clock of history.

  • Instead, it was David Davis, who set the tone with an optimistic assessment of the state of play on a range of issues, from the safety of nuclear materials to the common travel area between Ireland and the U.K.. he praised the dedication and professionalism of both teams of negotiators, but left no doubt that in the U.K.'s view Theresa may's speech in Florence last week had been a powerful catalyst energising the process.

  • This way, we made important progress and capitalise on her momentum created by the Prime Minister speak working quickly through a number of complex issues get there remains some points where further discussion and pragmatism will be required to reach Mister Davis did acknowledge areas of difficulty, like the e. use ambition to use its courts to guarantee its citizens, rights inside the U.K. after Briggs it, but his portrayal of a difficult process skilfully managed, rather than one on the point of stalemate.

  • Michelle Barney here, for his part, was careful to emphasise that he, too, believed that the Prime Minister's foreign speech had created a new dynamic put on the role of the European Court of justice in British life And on the scale of the bill that the U.K. will ultimately, except he stress, they were still much work to do, e. used test of sufficient progress on the citizens' rights, the financial settlement and the Irish border, who is the reward will be talks on trade was still not yet being passed, it is just around that we have had a cost Costa due week, yes, but we are not yet, they're in terms of achieving Sufism progress further work is needed, you coming weeks and coming.

  • There is no doubt that the atmosphere.

  • After the end of breaks a grant for is better than it was after round three, but whether my Barney, eh. said it aloud or not.

  • The clock is ticking towards next month's European summit, where he will submit a report on the negotiations, a report on which the first formal judgement of progress will part, be based, the government believes that the terms of the U.K.'s withdrawal and its future relationship with the E.U. are closely linked, and one can't be agreed without discussing the other.

  • But despite the improved tone of the talks, Michelle Barney, eh.

  • Family rejected this argument as a correspondent Chris Morris explains it was the most emphatic point that Michelle Barney, I made during the news conference, we see no logical or coherent link, he said, between discussion at the new partnership with the U.K. and discussion of settling past financial commitments that's in line with the Negotiating mandate.

  • He's been given by the leaders of the other twenty seven Member States, it deliberately restricts his room for manoeuvre and is designed to focus British attention, first and foremost, on the details of the separation agreement.

  • The trouble is the U.K. sees things differently.

  • David Davis said today that the U.K. is not yet at the stage of spelling out exactly what it believes it's financial commitments are on some issues, the U.K., argues that the E.U. is being unreasonable.

  • How can you discuss the future of the border between northern Ireland and the Republic, for example, without knowing what her future customs arrangement is likely to be this basic dispute about the sequence of the negotiations has been a problem from the very beginning, you Kay believes that shown flexibility and expects the E.U. to do the same.

  • The European response appears to be that it was the U.K. that changed the equation.

  • By voting to leave, and it therefore has the primary responsibility, to come up with solutions, the Prime Minister has delivered a robust speech in defence of capitalism and free market economies.

  • Here's our political correspondent lane, and I think into speeches, not even twenty four hours apart, the Prime Minister and the labour leader have thrown Into sharp relief their competing visions for how the economy should be managed Theresa may's strong defence of capitalism.
