Free movement of labour will still be in place.

The difference will be that there will have to be a need for an employer to fill a place.
i.e. the job must exist before the movement of the person to filling it.

Ok a bit more paperwork if its a non UK being offered the job but the employer is free to choose who he offers the job to.

And when they are no longer required, they go home.

A big difference between economic migration in the hope of betterment and having the skills to do a specific task.

The U.K. cabinet is bitterly divided over Brexit, and the Irish border isn’t the only problem.

It’s tempting to think Prime Minister Theresa May’s only difficulty in the Brexit negotiations is to find a solution to the Irish border conundrum. After all, it’s the only substantial question left to resolve in the U.K.’s divorce treaty, which needs to be finalized within the next few weeks. But the inability to find answers may be a symptom of a wider problem.

As Tim Ross reports today, two factions in May’s cabinet are battling over the issue of how to avoid customs checks at the Irish frontier without tying the U.K. into the European Union’s trade regime forever. The EU says there must be a “backstop” – an insurance policy that will keep the border invisible “unless or until” a better future post-Brexit arrangement is agreed.

The “unless or until” language, first mentioned in the EU’s plan for the Irish border backstop in February, highlights May’s difficulty. The U.K. doesn’t have an agreed clear vision for what it wants its future relationship to look like, and while this remains the case it’s difficult for May to get political buy-in for any version of the backstop. While the government remains divided over how close the U.K. should be to the EU after Brexit, any backup plan for Ireland doesn’t look quite as temporary as it otherwise might.

Negotiators are looking at various ways to help May make the Irish backstop more sellable. Brexit-backers in her cabinet are demanding a legally binding mechanism to pull Britain out. They fear that the U.K. will stay tied in a customs union with the bloc indefinitely, preventing the country from striking new trade deals around the world – a key prize of Brexit for those who campaigned for it.

That’s unlikely to wash with the EU, which says that the backstop can work as an insurance policy only if the “unless or until” language remains. At a summit in Brussels last week, May offered further compromises, pledging to consider extending the U.K.’s post-Brexit transition period and to drop her demand for a strict end-date to the backstop. It still isn’t enough and, as with May losing control over the warring factions within her team, it’s why many EU member states now struggle to see how May can push any reasonable negotiated accord through Parliament.

Sadiq Khan warned the EU to brace for Brexit to be delayed today - as Theresa May put off a Cabinet showdown over her Irish border plan.

The London Mayor told Michel Barnier to be ready to postpone the March deadline as he held talks with the negotiator in Brussels.

He said an extension to the Article 50 process could well be needed while a second referendum or election is held.

The intervention came as Remainers ramped up their campaign to block Brexit as negotiations reach crunch point.

So, it's been a few weeks since I looked for news on Brexit. Has anything changed? Apparently not...

Nicola Sturgeon has claimed that the draft Brexit agreement between the UK and EU would be bad for Scotland as her party pledged to oppose the deal.

Scotland's first minister said the proposals would take Scotland out of the single market while Northern Ireland effectively stays in.

This would have a "devastating" impact on jobs and investment in Scotland, she insisted.

The prime minister is currently hosting a cabinet meeting in Downing Street.

But her Brexit deal proposals, which have not yet been published, are already facing strong opposition from senior Brexiteers and some Remain supporters.

The BBC's Norman Smith said Theresa May would seek to head off the threat of any resignations by telling her ministers that while not perfect, the agreement was as good as it can get.

Ahead of the cabinet meeting, Mrs May told Prime Minister's Questions that the UK is now "significantly closer" to delivering on the result of the Brexit vote,

However the Democratic Unionist Party, which props up her minority Conservative government, has warned that the deal could lead to the break-up of the United Kingdom if it is accepted by MPs.
