Brexit breakthrough as Barnier’s language drops subtle hint Frost’s demands are sinking in

Mr Barnier‘s claims were unearthed in a diplomatic note to the UK’s negotiator, Lord Frost, which said he felt the UK “wants a deal but has yet to internalise” the details needed to ensure one is struck. The Frenchman’s demand appears to mirror a similar plea from Lord Frost, who previously told Mr Barnier the EU had to “internalise and accept the UK is independent” as talks hit a roadblock earlier this year. Given the wording of Mr Barnier’s note – and use of a similar phrase – it could be suggested that Lord Frost’s plea is now getting through to the EU official.
