United Kingdom won't be like 'Mad Max' after Brexit, minister says

Allianz Global Investors CEO Andreas Utermann discusses Brexit

He also intends to urge for a maintained strong partnership with the United Kingdom and the European Union on matters that involve principles and laws.

In his speech in Vienna the Brexit secretary will acknowledge that any future system of mutual recognition of regulations will require mutual trust in the institutions that enforce them.

Prime Minister Theresa May came under fresh pressure from those in her Conservative Party who want a swift, clear break from the European Union, as 62 lawmakers set out their Brexit demands in a letter.

The Dutch have been seen as a key ally to the United Kingdom during Brexit and Theresa May is hosting the country's PM Mark Rutte at Downing Street this week, as part of her efforts to win over the leaders of the EU27 ahead of next month's European Council, where the transition agreement is on the table.

David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, promised the United Kingdom will not become a "Mad Max-style dystopian" economy after some Brexit supporters urged the nation to kickstart growth by deregulating like Singapore once independent.

British officials highlighted a recent warning in a European commission presentation to member states relating to workplace safety standards that appeared to suggest United Kingdom workers could be at higher risk of cancer after Brexit.

Yucel, who has both German and Turkish citizenship, had been accused of writing propaganda in support of terrorism. The spokeswoman said that Berlin had not agreed to any "dirty deals or other arrangements" to secure the release.

Today David Davis has said Britain will not be "plunged into a Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction" following its exit from the EU. "These fears about a race to the bottom are based on nothing, not our history, not our intention, not our national interest". And that's why it's a message delivered by every member of Britain's government as we meet our European counterparts.

Among the possible consequences were enumerated lowered wages, reduced rights for consultations and bargaining between workers and employers and increased exposure to chemicals and carcinogens - meaning higher risk of getting cancer at the workplace.

The Netherlands has traditionally been seen as a key ally of the UK, and stands to be among the most impacted by any radical change to UK-EU trading conditions - as when imports and exports are combined it is the UK's third largest trade partner.

It found 60 per cent of respondents want to retain or tighten vehicle fuel emission standards and more than 70 per cent want to retain renewable energy targets, which the British government has previously lobbied against.

The Dutch government has activated a "hard Brexit" customs plan which will see it hire hundreds of new customs agents to deal with new trade barriers after Brexit, linking the decision to "divisions within the British Conservative Party" and a "remaining lack of clarity" from the UK. "And that there will be enforcement of such a border in terms of not only tariffs, but verification that the United Kingdom actually meets the standards they need to export into the European Union", he said, also listing checks for counterfeited goods or trafficking.
