With Brexit negotiations set to continue on Monday, Vuelio has launched a fortnightly Brexit Bulletin. We’ll cover policy developments, negotiation proceedings and the global media’s take on events – cutting through the noise with an unbiased overview of the latest information.
This week, the Government has published what used to be called the Great Repeal Bill; the National Audit Office has criticised the Government’s Brexit approach; and a cross-party rebellion over Euratom has picked up momentum.
- The Government is showing signs of a change in mood after the general election, with more focus on the negative aspects of Brexit – although Boris Johnson’s insistence that the bloc could ‘go whistle’ over the final exit bill suggests this change may not be substantial.
- On Tuesday, David Davis MP appeared in front of the House of Lords’ EU Select Committee, making headlines with his claim that, ‘I do not think anybody is likely to follow us down this route’.
- Theresa May faces stiff opposition from Wales and Scotland over the repeal bill – Nicola Sturgeon and Carwyn Jones have issued a joint statement calling it ’a naked power grab, an attack on the founding principles of devolution [which] could destabilise our economies.’
