EU says Britain must address Brexit deal doubts within hours | DW |

Barmier said, after talks between the EU and UK negotiators, he still saw three scenarios as being possible: a deal being agreed imminently; a delay; or a breakdown of talks.

He also said there remained three primary sticking points:

  • Customs arrangements for the island of Ireland

  • The issue of giving Northern Irish authorities a greater say over regulatory arrangements, and the ability to veto them

  • Guarantees of a level playing field - that Britain will not be at an unfair advantage when it comes to business regulation

The concerns about a level playing field arise from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's insistence on scrapping a provision of Theresa May's withdrawal deal that would see the UK comply with EU regulations on state aid, competition, tax, social, and environmental measures.
