In A change to the Brexit Update Series, As the negotiations are due to commence within the next few weeks, We would take a look at how the negotiations will work in practice.

Brexit, The never seem to die plague that is our exit from the EU, After what has seemed to be a long time of bitching on about the negotiations, they finally start to happen!

Between now and 2019 we will be clashing heads with the EU on working out the new arrangements between the UK and EU, How things like trade and immigration will work. In today’s article, we look at how the negotiations will work.

Where will the negotiations take place?

The decision on where to house the negotiations was made at the very start of the long process, The Brexit negotiations will be held in the home of Europe, Brussels in Belgium.

What Language will be Primarily used?

This one is a pretty stupid question but with quite a sting for an answer, The Lead Negotiator for the EU Michael Barnier has Demanded that the Negotiations be held in French. Whereas the UK wants to not form a policy on language.

How Many Rounds of Negotiations Will happen?

Now we are approaching confusing waters, As there is so much to be decided from fishing rights to the logistics of Migrations and immigration right through to the buisness side of things. There has been no set amount of negotiations in the two-year period.
