    Default EU tells Britain it's living in 'fantasy land' over hopes for a 'basic' Brexit deal

    The British government is living in “fantasy land” if it believes that it can an amicable break-up with the EU in the event of a 'basic' Brexit, senior EU officials and diplomats have told The Telegraph.

    Three separate EU sources in both Brussels and a leading EU capital have warned that British expectations of a “no deal, deal” had failed to understand the ramifications of the UK pulling out Europe without paying its bills.

    The tough European line raises serious question about the value of assurances given by David Davis to the Lords this week that Europe would do a “basic” deal with Britain in the event that both sides were unable to negotiate a trade deal.

    The Brexit secretary told the Lords EU select committee that in the “very, very improbable" event that a deal proved beyond the two sides, worst-case scenarios would be averted.

    They should have hired BrilloPad as Chief Negotiator - at least he would not have any illusions about amicable deals in divorce...

    EU will hike the requirements for a deal to ensure that no deal is ever made.

    They will cut off their nose to spite their face, it's about punishing Britain for not following the EU doctrine, at any cost.

    We should walk sooner rather than later.

    How is walking sooner helps? That would just make punishment much harsher

    we shouldn't walk we should march out having arranged an alternative.

    Then it is our lookout. I wish they would just get on with whatever they want to do.
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.
