Britain to hold special two-year parliament session to tackle Brexit

Having called an election on the pretext of needing a stronger mandate for the Brexit negotiations, she can not now claim she has one.

"What we put in place may not be a single arrangement that endures forever, it may be an arrangement which lasts for a couple of years as a temporary measure before we get to the long-term agreed status quo", he told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show.

Anxious by immigration and loss of sovereignty, Britain a year ago voted to end its decades-old membership of the 28-country bloc - the first state ever to do so - in a shock referendum result.

Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker was said to have reacted with incredulity at a suggestion by Theresa May when they met for dinner in Downing Street in April that an agreement could be wrapped up at the next European Union summit in Brussels at the end of June.

The EU wants to secure the rights of more than three million Europeans living in Britain - and over one million Britons living on the continent.

Three days after the talks begin, May is due to travel to Brussels for an European Union summit - a chance for the other 27 leaders to take stock of their negotiating partner in the sharply altered climate brought about by the dramas of the past two weeks.

Speaking ahead of a meeting with other European Union leaders in Brussels on Friday, Mr Hammond said: "We've set out very clearly our desired outcome in the Prime Minister's Lancaster House speech and in the Article 50 letter that we've sent".

BRITAIN has capitulated to European Union demands - and now Brexit talks due to start on Monday will be on Brussels' terms.

Davis, who heads to Brussels on Monday to open Brexit talks with the bloc, said that there would be no backtracking from Prime Minister Theresa May's plan.

Brexit minister David Davis will travel to Brussels to meet Michel Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator, to kick off hugely complex withdrawal negotiations that are expected to last less than two years.

The Chancellor's words are in stark contrast to the bullish message sent out by the government's Brexit department ahead of Monday's talks. A second phase of talks on future trade relations will follow only after they are satisfied that sufficient progress has been made on these issues.

This includes preparations for new bills on customs and immigration.

Mr Davis was also reported to be acknowledging the widely accepted reality that a complete Ireland deal can not be finalised until trade talks are engaged because the issue of cross-border trade will inevitably be tied to a settlement on the broader issue.

More pressing is the issues of providing effective guarantees to some 5 million people _ around 3 million European Union citizens living in Britain plus nearly 2 million Britons in Europe _ who want to know what the future holds after Brexit.

An EU-UK trade deal is far from plain sailing, however, with Brussels warning it could take up to seven years after Brexit to agree on one.

It is quite clear, however, that May did not have a good campaign, she was not an inspiring figure at all, she replied like a robot when asked questions on the campaign trail and her party's manifesto was roundly criticised for not taking into account people's concerns.

The prospect of Britain's continuing indefinitely in Europe's single market, which removes non-tariff barriers and helps trade in services, is less likely.

Chancellor Philip Hammond said the Government's priority in the negotiations should be to protect jobs, economic growth and prosperity.
