"I suggest humbly to our friends and partners in Brussels to get on with it," he said after giving a speech in London.

"They should grip it, go and get on with it and start thinking about the future. I am sure we can both think very creatively and very positively about how to come to arrangements that suit both our constituents on both sides of the channel."
