Report Number: 29276 Date: 18/10/2017

Title: NI special Brexit model 'possible' (2 of 3)

Of interest to: Northern Ireland

Script details:
A “special and unique” solution for Ireland after Brexit is legally possible, concludes a new report. Sinn Fein commissioned a team of lawyers to look into whether Northern Ireland could get a different Brexit deal to the rest of the UK. They concluded that Greenland, German unification, and a Cyprus solution all point to EU flexible deals. So could Northern Ireland go the same way? Sinn Fein’s Brexit spokesman, David Cullinane, says the peace process makes it essential that EU ties are not cut completely.

Title: NI special Brexit model 'possible' (1 of 3)

Of interest to: Northern Ireland

Script details:
Cyprus and Greenland could hold the key to Northern Ireland’s future – that’s according to a report published today. Sinn Fein commissioned experts to look at what models exist which could offer Northern Ireland the special status it wants after Brexit. According to the party, the North of Ireland must remain within the customs union and single market, even if the rest of the UK leaves. The report suggests that that might be possible. Sinn Fein’s Brexit spokesman is in Brussels for the report’s release. David Cullinane says the findings will be sent to British and EU negotiators in the hope of breaking the current deadlock.

Of interest to: Wales

Script details:
Britain will be forced to make concessions if it wants a Brexit deal, that’s according to a Welsh MEP.

It did not result in a breakthrough, but the government is hoping that a summit of EU leaders later this week will see the UK cut some slack. Welsh Labour MEP, Derek Vaughan, says they are misreading the signs.

Title: Calls to sack South East MEP (2 of 3)

Of interest to: South East

Script details:
A South East MEP is a victim of an “outrageous witch hunt” – that’s according to the European Parliament’s Brexit co-ordinator. Guy Verhofstadt has jumped to the defence of South East Lib Dem, Catherine Bearder, who supported in favour of the European Parliament’s Brexit resolution. That resolution is critical of the UK and rejects moving on to trade talks. Catherine Bearder says the Prime Minister’s unsuccessful mission to Brussels last night shows once again that the government, in her view, is now making headway.

Title: Calls to sack South East MEP (1 of 3)

Of interest to: South East

Script details:
Should a South East MEP be sacked for ‘disloyalty’? David Davis seems to think so. Lib Dem Catherine Bearder recently backed a Brexit resolution in the European Parliament critical of the UK and rejecting calls for trade talks to get under way. The Brexit Secretary wrote to the Lib Dems to complain. But Vince Cable has stood by their MEP. Catherine Bearder says she voted as her constituents wanted, with her liberal principles.
