PM: Brexit deal has to be ‘in­fe­rior’ to mem­ber­ship

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The prime min­is­ter has said the UK will have to ac­cept an “in­fe­rior” re­la­tion­ship with the Euro­pean Union to the one it cur­rently en­joys as a mem­ber.

Dr Joseph Mus­cat told re­porters Malta wants a “fair” Brexit deal for Bri­tain, but it “can­not be a su­pe­rior”.

He added that he be­lieved the mat­ter was a “point of con­ver­gence” among other EU lead­ers.

Mr Mus­cat’s com­ments come after a memo cap­tured on cam­era ap­peared to re­veal that Brexit Sec­re­tary David Davis wanted to “have the cake and eat it”, in­di­cat­ing that he is seek­ing to re­tain the free trade ben­e­fits of mem­ber­ship after the UK leaves the EU.
