Brexit deal ready subject to UK government approval, say sources

According to EU sources a Brexit deal between the European Union and Britain was largely ready in Brussels, subject to an “overall backing” from London.

“The level playing field and customs are agreed. Consent by the Northern Irish assembly every four years,” said an EU official, cited by Reuters. 

An EU diplomat confirmed that was the case, with just some haggling remaining on VAT arrangements. 

“Plus an overall backing from the British government is needed to launch it all,” the source said.
