  • EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said the UK must accept the European Court of Justice’s authority during any transition deal.
  • Comments follow several days of talks between EU and British negotiators, after which a senior EU official called the UK’s position a “fantasy.”

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier warned Britain on Saturday that failing to agree a deal on the governance of a withdrawal treaty which preserves the primacy of the EU court would mean no treaty and no transition period.

Barnier also described British delays in spelling out what kind of trade relationship London wants as “a game of hide and seek” in remarks prepared for delivery to a gathering in Portugal of jurists specialized in EU law.
