British companies excluded from EU Galileo space project if no-deal Brexit

British companies excluded from EU Galileo space project if no-deal Brexit

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the EU was not willing to go along with British proposals that would let the Republic of Ireland suffer as a result of Brexit.

Theresa May's Cabinet met for three-and-a-half hours to discuss preparations for a no-deal Brexit, with ministers receiving a briefing from the Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney.

He repeated calls for the United Kingdom to remain part of the single market and customs union, adding: "A "no-deal" Brexit should be unthinkable, which is why it should be ruled out, if necessary by extending the Article 50 process".

And as many have also predicted the government is warning that mobile phone roaming charges for Brits who travel to the European Union could soar from March 2019 if there's a no-deal Brexit.

Now, the government has further said that services reliant on European Union membership - like access to space programs - will be affected.

"Businesses now face the frustration of yet another wait for further answers", BCC Director General Adam Marshall said.

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab told the BBC Thursday that Britain would pay "significantly, substantially" less than the already agreed upon 39 billion pounds ($51 billion) in the event no agreement is reached. But a paper on aviation that had been anticipated - amid warnings that planes could be grounded in an extreme scenario - is not due to appear. The automotive, airline, aerospace and chemicals sectors would be most severely affected, Moody's said, as they account for the largest trade flows in goods with the EU.

The money is so important but after they choose the right people, from the beginning 10 years ago to make a step forward. It depends on how I feel physically and mentally. "The journalist asked if we'd sell for €250 million and I said no.

He said they were also working to find "common ground" on the relations after Britain has left.

Mr Raab had an "extended" phone call on Friday with the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier to review progress in the Brexit talks.

Last month the government published 24 no-deal documents covering industries including medicine, finance and farming.

Ministers insist that they would cap any new charges and mobile operators also insist they have no current plans to reimpose them.

Brexiteers accept there is likely to be some short-term economic pain but say Britain will thrive in the longer term if cut loose from what they see as a doomed experiment in German-dominated unity and excessive debt-funded welfare spending.

Even a small rebellion inside her party on a final deal could spell the end of her government and throw Britain's exit into chaos: She has 315 lawmakers in parliament who vote yet she needs 320 votes to pass a deal.
