Macron, May differ on UK's Brexit trade deal

Macron, May differ on UK's Brexit trade deal

At an European Union summit in Brussels last month, the two said they hoped to come up with shared reform proposals by March, with Macron having pushed the idea of a standalone budget and a single finance minister for the currency bloc.

Although the leader opened the door to a bespoke trade deal with the United Kingdom, he insisted full access to the single market without accepting its rules was "not feasible".

The BBC reported Macron saying the United Kingdom could have "deeper relations" with the European Union than other countries, but maintained stopping short of full Single Market access since Britain is leaving the bloc.

"As soon as you decide not to meet those preconditions it's not full access".

'There should be no cherry-picking in the single market because that's a dismantling of the single market, ' he said.

Mr Macron told Marr the United Kingdom would have to contribute to Brussels budget if they wanted to protect their financial services.
