Raised voices as divorce looms

Brexit talks between London and Brussels are showing the stress and strain of divorce: the talking is getting heated and insulting.

Who gets what out of the split is moving up the agenda, with Mr Juncker, EU commission president, saying (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39770328)

there will be no deal on access to EU markets ‘if the UK failed to pay the “divorce” bill.’

To scare London more, the divorce would be ‘very complex’ because London was not leaving a ‘golf club’. And to put the boot hard into London’s softer regions, he added that Brexit ‘cannot be a success. The more I hear, the more sceptical I become’.
