The European Commission added to mounting confidence in Brussels that it is set for a Brexit deal with London when it scheduled talks with EU lawmakers ahead of a crunch meeting Monday with Theresa May. However, EU officials and diplomats cautioned Sunday that it was still unclear that a deal would be struck with the British prime minister when she meets the EU executive.May's lunch Monday is a deadline for the EU to have her final offers before EU leaders consider whether to agree at a Dec. 15 summit to launch Phase 2 . Britain and the EU aim to sign a joint declaration setting out progress toward final deals which the Commission, as the EU executive, would say was "sufficient" for opening trade talks.The Irish prime minister said Saturday that would essentially cover all the 60 billion euros the EU had demanded.One suggestion in Brussels has been to limit clearly any ECJ involvement as a last resort and clearly only available to those EU citizens who choose to go on living in Britain before Brexit, not to any who arrive later.
