The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

LON­DON: Eurogroup chief Jeroen Di­js­sel­bloem has dis­missed as “in­tel­lec­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble” the no­tion that Bri­tain could re­tain un­fet­tered ac­cess to the Euro­pean sin­gle mar­ket while also cut­ting down on EU im­mi­gra­tion. Di­js­sel­bloem also warned yes­ter­day that ne­go­ti­a­tions for Bri­tain’s de­par­ture from the EU would take longer than two years. Di­js­sel­bloem spoke af­ter an in­ter­view by Boris John­son with a Czech daily in which the Bri­tish for­eign min­is­ter re­port­edly said Bri­tain would “prob­a­bly” have to leave the Euro­pean cus­toms union but still have “free trade” with EU states. – AFP
