The divorce process between the UK and the European Union has been kicked off. DW correspondent Birgit Maass spoke to former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, who has been critical of Theresa May's pursuit of a hard Brexit.
A looming Brexit makes Britain ineligible to host the EU's year-long cultural title, the EU has confirmed, describing it as a matter of "common sense." Some British cities had already launched selection campaigns.
Negotiators have given Britain until the end of the month to make headway on a divorce settlement that includes a hefty bill, citizens' rights and the Irish border. Leaders in Europe are increasingly losing patience.
In a Brexit-related move, officials have decided where to relocate the European Medicines Agency, the EU's drug agency. The decision, plus the relocation of the EBA banking agency, will affect many UK-based employees.
British Prime Minister Theresa May could bulk up the amount that Britain pays as it leaves the EU, in a bid to move talks on to trade. But senior leave campaigners have attached a condition to the money.
