Barnier’s “cynical” financial services stance

France said that it was not conducting hard Brexit talks, however it considers there is a little chance of securing a free trade deal for financial services that would provide the degree of access sought by Britain’s biggest tax paying sector.

UK public group Change Britain called French stance of UK financial services access “cynical”.
