>> If the EU want a deal, they need to get serious, and they need to do it now.>>
>> Straight talking from Britain's Brexit minister at day three of the conservative party conference in Birmingham. Dominic Raab took a new competent tone on Monday, saying that Britain cannot be bullied.
And urging the EU to show respect in talks to end the UK's membership of the bloc. With six months to go until the deadline, Prime Minister Theresa May faces growing criticism over her plans to leave, both within her party and in Brussels, as Reuters' Will James explains.>> This is a difficult week for the Prime Minister.
All of the conservative members who are usually spread out across the country, they're the ones who don't really like her plan for Brexit, and here they all are in Birmingham for four days. That discontent is going to be concentrated in one room. But that said, the conservatives like to put on a show of unity when they have these big conferences.
Happens every year, there's a lot of unhappy people. But when they're talking to us and when they're talking to people outside of the conference, they actually say, we back the prime minister.>> The conservative government has adopted a strident new tone in its dealings with the EU. That, after many in the party were angered by what they saw as an ambush in Austria last month, when several of the bloc's leaders criticized some of May's proposals to leave.
>> I think the Prime Minister will want to talk about anything but Brexit. She will be keen to talk about a domestic agenda. We've had all of her ministers here talking about the EU, trying to unite the conservatives against the EU, bit of a rallying cry. I think the Prime Minister won't really want to get into that.
She's delivered a message on Brexit already this week. She'll want to talk about reforming education, housing, all of these domestic issues that whilst Brexit is going on people feel aren't being attended to.>> Scrap Brexit.>> Britain's decision to leave the European Union has cost the government 500 million pounds a week, according to a report revealed on Sunday.
That figure wipes out, for the moment, any future savings from stopping payments to the bloc.
