    The main stumbling block for progress in Brexit.

    Brexit divorce bill: Theresa May to hold 'inner cabinet' talks

    Theresa May is to chair a meeting of some of her senior ministers to try to make progress on stalled EU talks.

    They are expected to discuss how much the UK should offer to pay the EU to settle its bill as it leaves.

    This bill, which is likely to run into billions of pounds, is one of the main reasons for the logjam in negotiations between the UK and the EU.

    Downing Street dismissed reports the UK could double its initial offer to the EU to 38bn.

    The UK's offer so far is estimated to add up to about 20bn.

    Find out more from The BBC News HERE




    AT LAST, we are finally getting to know why these talks have stalled.

    The first offer from Britain to buy out of the EU was 20bn and now they are considering offering 38bn.

    It is a poorly kept secret that the EU negotiators are looking for something more like 60bn before talks will be allowed to proceed.

    Yes, it is a ransom and the quicker that Britain are prepared to pay what is being expected, the quicker we can get on with trade and Customs Union talks.

    I just hope that they don't try to keep the figure under wraps as I know that the Tories do not want us to know how much it is going to cost.

    You can be sure that the body of the Westminster parliament will not let this happen, as they want a say in what is done during the Brexit negotiations.
