- About Us
Professor of Politics at Surrey University Simon Usherwood tweets the following graphic charting the nature of comments from the two chief negotiators seeking an EU-UK FTA; the EU's Michel Barnier and the UK's David Frost. The graphic lists the main areas of negotiation and identifies how frequently each man has made positive or negative comments regarding that are following each round of negotiations.
- As has been clear for some time, the sticking points surround the so-called level playing field (intended to ensure fair competition), fisheries, and horizontal arrangements and governance (agreements made between EU and a third party country such as Open Skies). Most other areas have had regular incidents of neutral or even positive comments made.
- It is also stark that Barnier has issued far more 'negative' comments on a range of issues than Frost, with the reverse true for 'positive' comments.
