Ministers from the EU agreed their trade mandate for Brexit talks with the UK on Wednesday. Ahead of the talks, the EU listed its demands for the negotiations, some of which have already been rejected by the UK Government.
Following the release of the demands, Express.co.uk readers took to Facebook to reveal their outrage at Brussels.
Paul Jeremy said: “Those issues are all non-negotiable.
“So just walk away and let them understand that we won’t be messed with.”
Another reader said: “UK really needs to show the middle finger to the EU Council and quit posturing with new red lines.

“Their gambit has failed.
“No access to UK fishing waters, labelling of food - just needs to be clearer packaging and country of origin - let consumers choose.”
Graham Spurrier said: “The EU does really need to get someone with a brain to sort out their ridiculous attitude.
“Sorry, forgot, nobody there to take Barnier’s place!”

Among the demands was the contentious issue of access to the UK’s waters.
Many have called on the Government to establish strict rights to UK waters with Britain now leaving the EU.
Despite those calls, the EU has insisted foreign vessels must have continued access to Britain’s waters.
