FRENCH pres­i­dent Emmanuel Macron called on Theresa May to be clearer on Brexit. The Prime Min­is­ter has of­fered a two-year tran­si­tion pe­riod for Brexit in which Bri­tain will con­tinue pay­ing into the EU un­til 2021.

EU na­tion­als will also be free to set­tle in Bri­tain dur­ing the pe­riod in a move hoped to ap­pease Brus­sels and end the dead­lock on free trade talks.

Mr Macron com­plained that more progress was needed on the rights of EU cit­i­zens in Bri­tain and the bor­der with Ire­land, as well as the “di­vorce set­tle­ment”.

Se­nior Tories were out­raged at Mr Macron’s com­ments. Tory MP Bernard Jenkin said he was un­rea­son­able in want­ing de­tail at this stage of ne­go­ti­a­tions.
