But mounting differences over Britain's divorce from the European Union have led the bloc to warn repeatedly that time was running out, that the post-Brexit transition was not given, and that London should be more precise and realistic on what sort of future ties it sought. Do you accept that, or do you then put in a guard to stop them doing that.

"The UK is choosing to leave the union, the single market and the customs union, we have noted that".

His European Parliament motion calls for an "association agreement" to deal with the future UK-EU relationship. Here, the example of Switzerland may set a precedent, with Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis recently stating that Switzerland could agree to an independent arbitration panel as part of a deal that would also allow Swiss laws to change in line with EU legislation, moving closer toward the EU's plans for a three-person arbitration panel to resolve Swiss-EU disputes.
