The first Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union have officially been scheduled for June 19. In preparation, the 27 remaining Member States have unanimously agreed on a set of guidelines that prioritize safeguarding the rights of EU citizens within the UK and obtaining a ‘single financial settlement’ for outstanding British contributions to common funds. Meanwhile, UK Conservatives are preparing for a June 8 special election – called in part to drum up support for the government’s negotiating position – by promising not to increase the rate of Value Added Tax after Brexit. This promise is part of a larger manifesto to keep taxes “as low as possible” and demonstrate “strong and stable leadership” during negotiations.
