The next round of Brexit talks has been postponed by a week to "allow more time for consultation".
The fourth round of UK-EU negotiations, due to begin on 18 September, will start on the 25th instead.
The government said a short delay "would give negotiators the flexibility to make progress".
There had been been speculation that the talks could be moved to accommodate a major speech by Prime Minister Theresa May on the issue of Europe.
Not sure what to think of this at all. What do they need to consult on and with whom? Isn't that the whole point of the negotiations, to talk?
I said last month that the next round of talks would be crucial, either we start to make progress or we have one major falling out with them.
Clearly, someone one side needs to back down. We've already said they'll get some dosh and we'll talk about it in parallel with talks on a future deal. They just want to talk dosh first.
Is this just a little blip, or are things about to unravel with consequences for all of Europe, not just us?
