A FURIOUS Brexiteer has insisted the UK can leave the European Union “instantly” during a heated debate Britain’s break from the bloc.
The audience member said: “There’s no free trade in services and goods, I do this for a living, I import diesel into this country – this is all absolute nonsense what these politicians are saying.
“There are only two systems there’s ECMS (Electronic Confirmation Matching System) which is the system that the European Union uses and there’s CHIEF (Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight) which is the rest of the world.
The comments come after Brexit Secretary David Davis and Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, held a press conference after the latest round of talks.
Mr Davis said the UK was making “decisive steps forward” in its negotiations with the European Union.
Mr Barnier confirmed he was happy with the clarity on certain points made by Mrs May.
He said: “The Prime Minister’s speech in Florence has created a new dynamic in the negotiations.
“We have managed to create clarity on some points but for others, we are not there yet and more work remains to be done.
“We will keep working with a constructive spirit until we reach a deal on the essential principles on the UK’s withdrawal.”
