Brexit transition battle BEGINS: May goes to WAR with EU on agriculture and fishing policy

Speaking in the Commons for the first time since the EU27 leaders agreed enough progress had been made during the first phase of Brexit talks, the Prime Minister suggested Britain would try to leave both the fisheries and CAP during the transition period.

However, the EU is of the mindset that Britain will stick with its current EU relationship without any major changes during the transition period.

Mrs May’s admission this afternoon suggests Britain will not absolutely maintain its current relationship with the EU during the transition period, and will instead opt out of certain policies as Britain continues its path out of the bloc.

She said: “We will be leaving the European Union on March 29 2019, we will therefore be leaving the Commons Fisheries Policy and the Common Agricultural Policy at that date.
