SPAIN has joined other EU countries in wanting to get a good Brexit deal for Britain.

This comes after Madrid supported a minimum tariffs agreement with the Netherlands post-Brexit.

Economy ministers for both countries agreed to push for a Brexit deal ‘that keeps Britain as close to the EU as possible.’

Now Spain join the Dutch, and the leaders of Italy, Poland, Hungary and Ireland to not let the EU punish the UK during trade discussions.

The move means Germany and France are increasingly isolated after heavily enforcing freedom of movement, a founding EU principle, on previous trade deals with Switzerland and Norway.

However, Spain are demanding a say on Gibraltar during talks, and have been given a veto on any deal by Brussels.

French President Emmanuel Macron comes to Britain next week to discuss trade with PM Theresa May, including a key debate on Brexit.
