EXCLUSIVE/ EU and Asian diplomats have poured cold water on the idea that developing economies of the ASEAN bloc are queuing up to do trade deals with a post-EU UK – a major policy plank of the British Brexit ministers.
Denmark’s prime minister has warned that the UK still has “quite a lot of work to be done” to figure out its Brexit negotiation position, after meeting with the British prime minister last night (10 October).
Mercifully, the party political conference season in Britain is over. We would not normally pay too much attention to the resolutions on EU policy passed by party rank and file delegates. But after Brexit it’s worth taking a closer look, writes Andrew Duff.
Britain needs to begin explaining its Brexit strategy to avoid prolonged uncertainty for businesses and negotiating partners, a London-based think tank said today (29 September), warning that internal squabbling risked undermining the government's position.

Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May, who campaigned for the UK to remain in the EU, emerged this weekend as the front-runner to become the next British prime minister – amid the political wreckage created by last week’s Brexit vote.
