David Davis, who spent several months to negotiate with Michel Barnier, has said that the EU would make a “massive miscalculation” if it thinks the UK is not ready for no-deal Brexit. He believed that the EU would lose more than the UK if it fails to reach an agreement.
This has great scope for being a massive miscalculation on the part of the EU that could end up with no deal by accident. It’s certainly not the intention of the EU to have a no-deal Brexit but they are misjudging us at the moment. The UK Parliament does not want no deal but it’s certainly not going to be pushed around by the European Parliament.
He added that no deal in which the UK could have its own currency and own destiny would be better than a bad deal. The EU and some specific countries would lose a lot too. His comments came after PM Theresa May visited Macron last week and the ministers visited their counterparts around the continent.
The UK and EU both hope to achieve a deal by October while Buckland, the Solicitor General, said that there would be time if the date slipped to November.
Labor believe that no-deal would be a “catastrophic failure of government” while Starmer said May’s “reckless red lines” had helped the difficulties. Pro-EU Tories declared that the UK should at least remain in a single market what the Former Cabinet minister, Nicky Morgan, said is “clearly (the) right option.”
