Has the Prime Minister got what she wanted from the EU about how Brexit talks will be structured?
No. Theresa May was proposing that parallel talks take place between the UK and the EU which would find agreement for future trade arrangements while the talks about leaving take place. The European Council's draft guidelines for discussions however say this will not happen. Its president, Donald Tusk, said:
"Only once we have achieved sufficient progress on the withdrawal can we discuss the framework for our future relationship."
What kind of Brexit, hard or soft, does the chancellor of the exchequer Philip Hammond want?
