Britain has sovereign choices to make on Brexit and they will determine its future access to the EU's internal market, the chairman of the bloc's leaders said on Wednesday, suggesting it is now up to London to break an impasse on negotiations. "The UK now has an important choice to make on its own future," European Council President Charles Michel told the European Parliament.

"It's not about choosing the negotiating tactics. It's about choosing the model of their society for the future. Do our British friends want to regulate state aid and uphold high medical standards? If so, why not commit to them." "Time is very short and we stand ready to negotiate 24/7, on all subjects, on legal texts. The UK has a bit of a decision to make and it's their free and sovereign choice. Their sovereign answer will determine the level of access to our internal market."
