Tusk says UK Brexit plan ‘won’t work’



EU Council President Donald Tusk says that key parts of the British proposals to leave the European Union “will not work.” 
Tusk said Thursday after a two-day summit partly centering on the British divorce talks with the EU that some of the suggestions from Prime Minister Theresa May would undermine the union of the 27 remaining members. 
May has been looking to keep trade in goods in the single market of the EU after Britain leaves but not for services. The EU has said that the single market cannot be cherry-picked like that. 
He said of the so-called Chequers proposals that “the suggested framework for cooperation will not work, not least because it risks undermining the single market.”
