Britain's progress toward life outside the European Union became more entangled Friday, with divisions deepening over Northern Ireland's border and even the type of divorce Britain actually wants.Negotiations on the future relationship between Britain and the EU are now less likely to start in October due to a lack of progress at the initial stage of talks about the breakup, Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has told EU ambassadors.Finance Minister Philip Hammond, who opposed leaving the EU in last year's referendum and has one eye on the business community, said there should be no immediate change to immigration or trading rules when Britain leaves.Some EU member state diplomats say it's now hard to discern what Britain wants.Britain has less than two years to negotiate the terms of the divorce and the outlines of the future relationship before it is due to leave in late March 2019 .
