On Tuesday, as a response to comments from Michel Barnier, the chief negotiator of the European Union, a spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May said that the differences between the European Union and the United Kingdom over what a Brexit transition period should look like are considered normal.

The spokesperson stated: “During a negotiation, you would not expect both sides to immediately agree on everything. What’s absolutely clear is that both the UK and the EU agree that an implementation period is beneficial, and we’re working to reach agreement in March.”

On Tuesday, Barnier gave a warning on London again that negotiations regarding Brexit were not going well enough to guarantee that both sides would finally reach a divorce deal and an agreement regarding the post-Brexit transition in time.
