UK, EU close to Brexit deal on financial services

'We're not going to wait for a ideal agreement.

The former Ulster Unionist Party leader, now a Conservative peer, said in a foreword to a think tank report that the achievements of the Good Friday Agreement were being put at risk.

The biggest obstacle to a Brexit deal has been Britain's wish to keep the border of its province of Northern Ireland with Ireland open - preserving frictionless trade and a 1998 peace deal that ended sectarian violence - while leaving the EU's single market and customs union to forge its own trade deals.

The Electoral Commission said it had "reasonable grounds to suspect that Mr. Banks was not the true source of the £8 million loans made to Better for the Country". They fear that, under equivalence, Britain will end up as a rule-taker - having, like Norway, to cut and paste European Union regulations into national law without having a say.

She also reportedly briefed her Cabinet on the progress made on the future relationship during talks last week.

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab is expected to travel to Northern Ireland in the coming days in the hope of finding a way through the last major sticking point in the negotiations.

Britain's Brexit minister Dominic Raab believes a divorce deal with the Brussels could be struck by November 21, it emerged Wednesday, prompting European Union leaders to warn this would require a breakthrough within days. The Home Secretary told ITV there would be a "sensible transition period" to allow time for a new immigration system.

The bank could be forced to raise interest rates, depending on how the pound reacts, he said.

Such a move would leave millions of borrowers facing higher costs for mortgages and other loans at a time when the economy may be slowing.

Carney said that a No Deal Brexit was the least likely outcome of the various Brexit endgame scenarios.

The implication is that a period of longer-term Dollar strength might be ending; this bodes for GBP/USD strength ahead, particularly in the event of a Brexit dealing being struck and a smooth exit being secured.

The pound jumped yesterday, ending the day at $1.30, an increase of more than 0.4 cents or 1.8 per cent, the...

It offered a glimmer of hope for anxious businesses, as it said policymakers saw greater clarity on Brexit emerging "in the relatively near term".

This saw the Bank trim its forecast for growth overall in 2018, to 1.3% from 1.4% predicted in August, while it also nudged its 2019 outlook down to 1.7% from 1.8%.
