    Default Tory Brexit No Deal DOOM™: EU planning for collapse of Brexit talks

    EU planning for collapse of Brexit talks, says Michel Barnier

    Chief negotiator says no-deal scenario is not Brussels’ preferred option, but everyone needs to plan for it

    The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, has said the bloc is drawing up contingency plans for the possible collapse of Britain’s departure talks.

    Barnier, who last week gave the UK a two-week deadline to provide greater clarity on the financial settlement it was prepared to offer as part of the divorce deal, told France’s Journal du Dimanche newspaper the failure of the talks was not his preferred option.

    “But it’s a possibility,” he said. “Everyone needs to plan for it, member states and businesses alike. We too are making technical preparations for it. On 29 March 2019, the United Kingdom will become a third country.”

    The remarks came as Theresa May faces increasing pressure at home, with Tory and Labour MPs warning she risks a Commons defeat over Brexit within weeks if she continues to deny parliament a meaningful vote on the final deal with the EU.

    The only Brexit that can happen is the so-called "Hard Brexit", only then, after exhausting 10 years of negotiations, UK will finally rejoin EU on conditions of accepting EURO, EU Army and French/Germany languages taught as second in schools.

    You've heard it on here first...

    No, their preferred option is to empty the BoE. Anything else is a bonus...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
