With the UK's Brexit referendum just around the corner, British members of the European Parliament are hard at work campaigning in Strasbourg. Some are for parting ways with the EU and some are against, but all agree a break-up would be painful.
UK government ministers are to publish new papers setting out their aims for Brexit talks. Fourteen months after the referendum, there has been little progress in talks on the terms for the UK's exit from the bloc.
London has pledged to avoid border posts between the EU-member Republic of Ireland and the UK country of Northern Ireland after Brexit. Questions still remain as to how Britain plans to police the "frictionless" border.
London will agree to pay up to 40 billion euros to quit the EU, not a cent more, according to a report. It's much less than the EU wants.
The UK would have to honor its financial commitments to the EU until "at least 2020," despite Brexit, the EU's budget chief told the German newspaper Bild. The EU is mulling reforms to compensate for Britain's absence.
