Michel Barnier By The Jacques Delors Institute (CC-BY-2.0)

Daily Brexit Update: Wednesday 11th July 2018

The EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said in New York yesterday that a Brexit deal was 80% complete says the Guardian. He also said that he was determined to get the remaining 20% completed too. This seems to be a change in the recent mood music.

But Bloomberg has a different take on Barnier saying that he has cast doubt on Theresa May's plans.

And Michael Gove thinks it's a great plan, which he is behind 100%.

However, two Tory MPs have resigned from vice chairmanship of committees over Theresa May's Chequers proposals. Maria Caulfield, was the Tory Party Vice Chairman for Women, and Ben Bradley was the vice chair of the party.

The Tory MEP Dan Hannan thinks a point may come where leaving without a deal would be better than accepting a 'humiliating' deal:

Theresa May thought she was out of the woods, but it looks like all she's done is entered a forest! Patrick O'Flynn thinks she may be in trouble:

And the UKIP leader, Gerard Batten thinks the BBC is after him:

And finally John Cleese is moving to 'one of the nicest island' he has been to because he is fed up over the lies on both sides of the Brexit debate and really fed up with the press he told Emily Maitlis on BBC Newsnight.
