EU leaders urged to agree Brexit transition

Prime Minister Theresa May has made her pitch for a ‘smooth and sensible’ Brexit in her speech to EU leaders in Florence.

If a successful agreement is reached, she will say, ‘then when this chapter of our European history is written, it will be remembered not for the differences we faced, but for the vision we showed; not for the challenges we endured but for the creativity we used to overcome them; not for a relationship that ended but a new partnership that began.’

May is expected to appeal for both sides to be ‘imaginative and creative’, adding ‘I believe we share a profound sense of responsibility to make this change work smoothly and sensibly.’

The two year transition period could mean the UK pays to keep its links to the European single market.
