Barnier and Johnson clash over post-Brexit tiesThe EU and Britain opened hostilities in Brexit's next bruising chapter on Monday, laying down tough red lines for a post-divorce future following the UK's dramatic exit from the bloc. Europe's chief negotiator Michel Barnier formally announced his ideas for new ties in Brussels, offering London a deep relationship going forward as long as Britain makes guarantees to trade fairly. The former French minister said fisheries and fair trade would be his top priorities in the 11 months of talks, with a special focus on denying Britain “unfair competitive advantages”.
