  • EU leaders harden stance against Brexit concessions —

    Europe’s leaders have dug in their heels over uncontrolled migration in the single market, scotching any hopes the UK might harbour about negotiating a post-Brexit deal in a direct snub to prime minister David Cameron’s plea to recognise British voters’ concerns.

    The move to damp Westminster expectations to curb free movement came after the EU’s remaining 27 members met in Brussels for the first time without the UK — a political watershed after 43 years of British membership.

    “There will be no single market à la carte,” said Donald Tusk, the EU Council president, as the group met to set out the terms of engagement for any divorce talks following the Brexit referendum.
