As formal talks on the transition got under way in Brussels this week, European Union diplomats said any extension would be agreed only after Britain formally leaves in March 2019, so that London would remain under pressure to conclude a trade deal or face its economy going off a "cliff edge" from 2021.

It has emerge that the Prime Minister has told her Cabinet to expect a clean and "immediate" break from the European Union as soon as the transition period ends in 2021.

The EU negotiator's stark message, which weakened sterling, came after EU diplomats and officials warned in recent days that sticking points in the talks were threatening the whole Brexit schedule that the two sides had agreed on to provide certainty to business and citizens.

At the Tory party's annual Black and White Ball in London, Mrs May told the assembled donors, celebrities and politicians: "Ever since the British people delivered their vote in the referendum, I have had no doubts about what our new relationship with the European Union must mean for the United Kingdom".

The value of the pound to the dollar took an immediate dive after Barnier's comments, indicating the importance of a transition period to businesses in the UK. "Time is short, very short".

She released a statement which said: "Contrary to misleading media reports, I have absolutely no relationship with, or involvement in the work of, Best for Britain". That would mean tariffs would be slapped on goods, and in the worst case, data transfers, air travel and food supplies could also be disrupted.

"However, at the same time, our partners set out a number of disagreements which I see as substantial", Barnier said at a press conference in Brussels on Friday.

The British prime minister sought to ease Tory tensions over her approach by insisting she had "no doubts" about her plan for a new relationship with Brussels.

If the answer to that question is no, then the ECJ judges are asked to determine what, if any, conditions or limitations should apply to the maintenance of those rights once Britain leaves the EU.

That came a day after the Bank of England said it was likely to tighten policy sooner and by more than policymakers had reckoned only three months ago, because Britain's slow-moving economy was getting a boost from the global recovery.

The EU has also toughened its stance, and has threatened to unilaterally suspend the United Kingdom from the benefits of the single market if it breaks rules during the two-year period.

He said, "I'm surprised by these disagreements and if they persist, a transition is not a given. We await with great interest the choices to be made by the British government", Barnier said.

"Any solution must be precise, clear and unambiguous", explained Barnier. May's Cabinet is divided between those who want to remain close to the EU's single market and customs union and those who want a clean break so Britain can strike new trade deals around the world.
