Negotiators say draft treaty is close
EU and UK negotiators are close to a breakthrough, the FT reports.
However they are still struggling with disputes over fishing rights and the how to end “backstop” arrangements for the Irish border.
“At a briefing for ambassadors in Brussels on Friday evening, EU negotiators said there was broad consensus with London on the structure of an exit treaty and Irish border “backstop”, which the two sides ideally aim to seek political approval for next week.”
We’ve been through this all so many times, including last weekend when there were reports that a deal was done.
Is it better to go into the weekend long or short GBP?
