Britain secured an initial deal to move Brexit talks to a second phase last week, by agreeing terms on how much the country should pay to leave the EU, on citizens' rights and the tricky issue of Northern Ireland's border with Ireland, where London agreed a fallback of regulatory "alignment" with the EU.
