(Reuters) - European governments would be allowed to ban all UK residents from entering their countries and cut all passenger transport links with Britain under a German proposal to the European Union, the Times reported on Thursday.
EU member states are free to impose temporary bans on entry and on transporting passengers entering from non-EU countries with virus variant areas, the Times reported bit.ly/3iyBdkk, citing a draft proposal reviewed by the newspaper.
Separately, the EU is prepared to ease post-Brexit border friction if Britain drops its plan to create a "Singapore on the Thames", Times reported bit.ly/3iEbCH2 citing diplomatic sources.
