France eyes post-Brexit deal to keep fishing UK waters

European countries affected by the end of a deal allowing them to fish close to Britain's coastline need an accord to allow them access after Brexit, France said on Monday.

Britain is to withdraw from a 50-year-old agreement allowing vessels from five European countries -- Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands -- to fish within an area that is six miles (10 kilometres) off the UK's coast.

Chance of smooth Brexit fades after British election chaos

Chance of smooth Brexit fades after British election chaos

Theresa May's insistence on starting Brexit negotiations next Monday is questioned by Britons who think the prime minister's calamitous election setback means she should now seek to stay in the EU single market.

British Prime Minister Theresa May under pressure after hung UK results; Brexit dilemma loom

British Prime Minister Theresa May

British Prime Minister Theresa May faced mounting pressure today to resign after her Conservative party failed to muster a simple majority in the crucial polls she had called three years ahead of schedule hoping to boost her negotiating powers during the complex Brexit talks.
