Britain and EU launch Brexit talks in Brussels

Britain starts formal talks to leave the European Union on Monday, seeking a deal "like no other in history" despite entering fiendishly hard negotiations with a badly weakened government.

Davis is to meet Michel Barnier, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, to kick off hugely complex withdrawal negotiations that are expected to conclude within two years.

More than two thousand companies have gathered for The Paris Air Show, which gets underway today.

The shock outcome of the June 8 election saw PM Theresa May lose her parliamentary majority, sparking speculation the Tories may be forced to soften their hard-line Brexit stance.

It will test the ingenuity of thousands of public servants racing against the clock to untangle 44 years of European Union membership before Britain is out, 649 days from now, on March 30, 2019. "We have to be very clear that we're not going to do it in a way that damages the economy", he said.

With Britain's negotiations on the terms of its departure from the European Union set to begin on Monday, the country risks skills shortages and losing business if it ends freedom of movement without a new plan for attracting workers, the report by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development said.

Instead, she said that she wants to negotiate a "bold and ambitious" new trade agreement that replicates as far as possible the existing trade arrangements.

May will face an immediate leadership challenge from euroskeptic lawmakers in her party if she seeks to water down her plans for Brexit, the Sunday Telegraph reported, citing senior Conservative sources.

Bill Cosby's sexual assault case ends in mistrial
Constand met Cosby at Temple when she worked there as director of operations for the university's women's basketball team. NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Bill Cosby , the comedian once known as "America's Dad" for his TV role as paternal Dr.

The negotiations have been called the most complex in Britain s history as it unravels 44 years of membership and its threat to walk out with no deal in place has anxious European capitals.

Normally, Parliament sits for one year, but officials said more time will be needed. With May still hammering out the details of a post-election deal to stay in power with the support of a small Northern Irish party, there are fears of a disorderly exit that would weaken the West, imperil Britain's $2.5 trillion economy and undermine London's position as the only financial center to rival NY. Mr Case was Principle Private Secretary to the Prime Minister before talking up this role.

Commons leader Andrea Leadsom, a leading Brexit supporter, said she believes the two-year timetable can be met. The EU insists that should wait until an outline agreement on divorce terms, ideally by the end of this year.

"As we enter negotiations next week we will do so in a spirit of honest cooperation, taking a pragmatic approach, trying to find a solution that works" for Britain and the European Union, he said.

The European Commission has said that it wants the discussions to focus on "citizens" rights, the financial settlement, the Northern Irish border and other separation issues'.

Macron said that the EU's door has always been open for Britain should it abandon plans for its Brexit.

Some Conservatives have called for a more inclusive approach that would include opposition parties as well as stronger voices from Scotland and Northern Ireland, where a majority of voters backed Britain to stay in the EU.
