Macron rebuffs City deal after Brexit unless United Kingdom pays into European Union budget

Dr Lisa Doyle, Director of Advocacy at the Refugee Council, said, "We warmly welcome the commitment made by the British and French governments to speed up the process by which people desperately wanting to reach their relatives are able to do so".

On his first visit to the United Kingdom this week, President Macron signed a treaty with the Prime Minister to speed up the processing of migrants in Calais.

Macron added that Trump was "not a classical politician" and was "elected by his humoring people". It is not a gift for France.

Mrs May defended the decision to commit extra resources to Calais.

Macron was expected to lay out demands in Calais for Britain to take in more refugees from northern France and increase its funding for securing the border.

The French president, making his first visit to Britain since entering the Elysee Palace, was greeted at Sandhurst with a guard of honour from the Coldstream Guards.

According to the BBC, Macron said a future arrangement could fall somewhere between a Canada-style free trade agreement and a Norway-style deal with access to the single market.

The venue — the Sandhurst military academy southwest of London — was selected as a signal that the relationship between western Europe's two biggest military powers won't be weakened once the United Kingdom leaves the European Union in 2019.

Speaking to Marr, he warned that the United Kingdom could not "cherry-pick" the elements it wanted.

Mrs May has committed the United Kingdom to leaving the single market, but Mr Macron indicated that was the only way to get the access she wanted for the economically important financial services industry.

John McDonnell this morning dismissed suggestions that the United Kingdom should pay for access to the Single Market after Brexit. But it means that you need to contribute to the budget and acknowledge European jurisdiction.

However, business groups have hit back at the idea, and have argued an equivalent scheme to passporting can be achieved as part of a free trade agreement with the EU.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly outlined her wish for a post-Brexit trade deal including both goods and services.

"I think a lot of our issues in both the Middle East and in Africa is due to a lot of frustrations due to a lot of past humiliations", Macron said.

"That is an advantage not just for the United Kingdom, it's actually good for Europe and good for the global financial system".
