Britain's Davis 'pretty sure' he'll get good deal to leave EU


Britain's Davis 'pretty sure' he'll get good deal to leave EUBritain’s Brexit minister David Davis said on Sunday he was “pretty sure” he could negotiate a good deal to leave the European Union, something that would require a transitional arrangement for around one or two years. Davis, who launched the Brexit talks with EU negotiator Michel Barnier last week, also threw his support behind Prime Minister Theresa May, saying he took his share of the blame for advising her to hold an early election this month in which her Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority. Telling members of the Conservative Party to stop being “self-indulgent” at a time when local media are rife with reports about who will replace May, he said: “I happen to think we’ve got a very good prime minister.” Asked whether he was sure there would be a Brexit deal, Davis told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “I am pretty sure, I am not 100 percent sure, it’s a negotiation … You can be sure there’ll be a deal, (but) the deal I want is the free trade agreement, the customs agreement and so on.
