‘Brexit has a price’ Merkel hammers home threat to UK as Europe gears up for divorce talks

19 May

Mrs Merkel also urged the UK to maintain a “level playing field” with the bloc to avoid harming businesses and workers.

And she warned Brexit negotiations would be “very, very complicated”.

The Chancellor said: “We will, of course, always think in the future relationship of the 48 or 49 per cent who didn’t back Brexit.”

In the Tory manifesto, released yesterday, Mrs May has promised to bring net migration to Britain down to the tens of thousands. 

However, the PM has not set a timeframe for when she will do so, with ministers insisting the process must be carried out carefully and with the economy in mind.
