    The first knockback in the Brexit negotiations.

    Brexit: UK caves in to EU’s demand to settle divorce terms before future trade deals on first day of talks

    David Davis told the 'weakness of your negotiating position' has been exposed - within hours of the talks opening.

    Britain caved in to the EU on the opening day of the Brexit talks, when it agreed to settle its “divorce” before trying to negotiate a future trade deal.

    In a major defeat, Brexit Secretary David Davis was forced to drop his central demand for the two strands of the negotiations to be staged in parallel, within hours of arriving in Brussels.

    Last month, Mr Davis vowed to wage the “row of the summer” to secure immediate talks on a free trade agreement – predicting an early collapse if the EU refused to give way.

    Well, there you have it: It looks as if Davis is going to take the easiest way out of the Brexit negotiations.

    That will be by just agreeing with everything the EU Brexit negotiator throws at us.

    In other words that adds up to being a HARD Brexit deal.

    Of course, that was what we expected from the Tories, was it not ?

    I think that Davis is going to be hammered from all angles as a way of punishing Britain for having the temerity to leave the EU.

    Every point that he tries to get a result from for Britain is going to be one that he will have to fight for with gritted teeth.

    We may find that he will have to keep coming back to the Westminster parliament to get decisions made.

    I cannot see him having the personal power to make such important deals on his own.

    Every little step that is going to be made in the Brexit negotiations is going to be a battle that very few of our Tory politicians would be prepared to make.

    This could go on for years and years and until we are totally sick of the word "Brexit", if we are not already sick of it.
