Theresa May takes control of Brexit talks

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab

Dominic Raab has insisted he will not "wallow in pessimism" about the Brexit process as Eurosceptics voiced concerns his department was being sidelined by Number 10.

Gerald Mason, senior vice president at Sugars, said told BBC Radio 4's Broadcasting House: "In theory the white paper allows the United Kingdom to have an independent trade policy, in practice the mechanism that will be used to jointly police the UK's and EU's tariffs is what we are confused about".

European Union negotiator Michel Barnier is also lukewarm on May's latest proposal, asking many questions about its viability. Last week's deal with Japan, which covers 600 million people, is a case in point.

May is facing a rebellion by BREXIT hardliners over the proposals, including the resignation of Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis.

Raab met the EU's top negotiator Michel Barnier for the first time on Friday, where he heard doubts over May's new Brexit blueprint for the future relationship.

So even though Mrs May has settled that she is, for now anyway, the only one taking decisions, it by no means spells the end of the mendacity that will continue to be perpetrated by the extreme Brexiteers.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May listens to the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani at the start of their meeting at 10 Downing Street, London, Britain July 24, 2018.

Dominic Raab, the new Brexit Secretary after his predecessor quit two weeks ago, said he was still seeking to persuade all members of the Cabinet that Mrs May's plan was the best one to "get the best deal".

According to the poll, 38% of people would vote for a new right-wing party that supports Brexit, while almost a quarter would support a clearly-expressed extreme right-wing, anti-immigrant and anti-Islamist party.

He said: "The Tories betrayed pensioners before the last general election, and they're doing it again now with their blinkered Brexit".

Some global businesses have stepped up planning for a so-called "no deal" though they admit there is little clarity about what such a scenario would look like.

There's more speculation than ever that a Brexit deal won't be reached by next March, when the United Kingdom will leave the EU.

He continued: "But they are there simply for the goal of making money and smuggling and that will actually help by keeping these chaps - who might otherwise do silly things, giving them something useful and money-making to do".

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told MPs he had asked officials to "work up options for stockpiling" by the pharmaceutical industry while Mr Raab said the Government would also take steps to ensure an "adequate food supply".

In her written statement to parliament, May said: "It is essential that in navigating the UK's exit from the European Union, the government is organised in the most effective way".
