Brexit boost: Robert Peston brilliantly explains why Johnson’s no deal won’t be scrapped

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he would be prepared to leave the EU without a deal if no further negotiation on a withdrawal agreement are successful. Writing for ITV, Mr Peston said officials in Brussels and in other European capitals held the belief that MPs would not be able to stop Mr Johnson if he pushed forward with no deal.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he would be prepared to leave the EU without a deal if no further negotiation on a withdrawal agreement are successful. Writing for ITV, Mr Peston said officials in Brussels and in other European capitals held the belief that MPs would not be able to stop Mr Johnson if he pushed forward with no deal. Mr Peston wrote: “Here is the fundamental reason why a no deal Brexit is now overwhelmingly likely: senior officials in Brussels and in European capitals tell me that there is no basis for negotiating a new Brexit settlement with Johnson – which is almost a truism – and that broadly the choices are between a near facsimile of May’s settlement, remaining in the EU or a no-deal Brexit.”
