Prof. Alain Laurent Verbeke from the University of Leuven in Belgium takes a closer look at the non-verbal messages being sent by the two chief negotiators, Michel Barnier and David Davis.
Chief Brexit negotiator David Davis wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May that he no longer wanted to be her "conscript." His move comes days after May announced she'd united her Cabinet behind an EU exit plan.
The conservative Interior Minister told the European Commission that it should aim for "unconditional security cooperation" in Brexit negotiations with Britain. Berlin reportedly didn't sign off on that request.
The EU’s chief negotiator is skeptical about a new proposal to resolve the Irish border issue, one of Brexit's key sticking points. He called on the UK to respect its own red lines as a crucial June 28 summit nears.
It's been a difficult time for Theresa May: Her Cabinet cannot agree on a customs arrangement with the EU, Brexit negotiator David Davis is threatening to resign, and Donald Trump ignored her at the G7 summit.
