EU faces reality: Brussels admits ‘no alternative’ to No Deal – nations get 48hrs for plan

EU chiefs are now in “full no-deal Brexit preparation” after giving up on Boris Johnson’s ability to deliver an agreement, Brussels sources have revealed. The Prime Minister’s plan to scrap the controversial Irish backstop has all but ended hopes of a deal being reached ahead of October 31.

EU diplomats and officials have conceded that Britain leaving without an agreement is now the most likely outcome after Mr Johnson’s chief negotiator held meetings in Brussels last week. David Frost told European Commission officials that the Government favours abolishing the backstop in favour of “alternative arrangements” – but admitted any plan would not be ready until after Britain’s exit.
