Boris Johnson must get Brexit plan TODAY after Donald Tusk sets ‘private deadline’Daily Express :: Politics Feed  

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was given a private deadline to outline Brexit proposals to the European Union by the European Council President. Speaking in Cyprus, Mr Tusk discussed Britain’s departure from the European Union, noting the Prime Minister’s discussions with Leo Varadkar on Thursday. He said: “A week ago I told Prime Minister Johnson that if there was no such proposal by today I would announce publicly that there are no more chances because of objective reasons for a deal during the incoming European Council.

“However, yesterday when the Irish Taoiseach and the UK Prime Minister met they both saw a pathway to a deal.

“I have received positive signals from the Taoiseach that a deal is still possible.

“Technical talks are taking place in Brussels as we speak. Of course, there is no guarantee of success and the time is practically up.

“But, even the slightest chance must be used.”

Shortly after his statement, Mr Tusk wrote on Twitter: “The UK has still not come forward with a workable, realistic proposal.
